Nov-20-03  Lawrence: A clear win for Black (unless Nagel ran out of time.)
Nov-20-03  AdrianP: <Lawrence> 10...Qxa1? 11. Nb3! wins the black queen. Anything else black is just a piece down.
Nov-20-03  Master of Sacrifice: good call. I say however that Nagel by no means had an automatic loss.
Nov-21-03  AdrianP: <Master of Sacrifice> Agreed, but I think I'd be too depressed to carry on after blundering a piece in 10 moves...!
Nov-21-03  Lawrence: Thanks, Adrian, now I see (said the blind man).

  technical draw: In 1964 nagel lost a game in 11 moves. In 1985, 21 years later, he (or she) loses in 10 moves. Hmmm. I know a pub in London, Nagel,where they play Connect Four. Maybe you should consider switching.
Oct-26-05  chesscrazy: Nagel still had some chances to win. I don't know why he resigned. Taking the b4 pawn would have been fine.
