|Jan-06-05|| ||Knight13: Nice to see this game. Black can win easily in the endgame with his rook killing off pawns and promoting pawns. |
|Nov-10-06|| ||The Backward Pawn: Mischief. Mayhem. Soap.|
|Nov-10-06|| ||Ashram64: ...nice fighting|
|Nov-10-06|| ||FSR: Wow. White must have had a win somewhere.|
|Nov-10-06|| ||syracrophy: Wow! A failed king hunt!|
|Nov-10-06|| ||Infohunter: One of the correspondence match games that gave this opening the name of "Scotch Game".|
|Nov-10-06|| ||Deefstes: Was 48.Qg2 a blunder? It seem to me that it sets up the exchange that ends in the loss of the white Rook.|
|Nov-10-06|| ||FSR: <Deefstes> White is lost at that point, since other 48th moves lose the rook outright, e.g. 48.Kf2 Qf4+|
|Nov-10-06|| ||Achilles87: 45... Be4# looks good to me|
|Nov-10-06|| ||Stosb: Achilles87: 45... Be4# looks good to me
It looks really good, if it wasn't for white's rook at f1.
|Nov-10-06|| ||al wazir: <Deefstes: Was 48.Qg2 a blunder?> No, the blunder was 47. Qb2.|
White could have drawn by repetition with 32. Qc5+.
|Nov-10-06|| ||Achilles87: Ah yes, too good to be true..|
|Nov-10-06|| ||WarmasterKron: Surely we should not talk about Fight Club?|
|Nov-10-06|| ||sfm: I remember reading about this game that London, after sending move 27.Rxg5? (all moves by telegraph), immediately sent a cancellation of the move. Edinburgh refused to acknowledge the cancellation, and the game went on under protest, an affair that according to the book "made waves for years to come".|
|Nov-10-06|| ||sfm: This doc gives the whole story and analysis. I find it very interesting!
|Nov-10-06|| ||kevin86: The first rule of FIGHT CLUB is:We do not talk about Fight Club.|

A great movie-if you own it Watch it! If you don't,Buy or Rent it!!
It looks like at various segments of this game,that neither team can save it. Black diverts the white queen with the rook sac-to gain the winning attack. The ending ++ vs ++ is an elementary win in this case.
|Nov-10-06|| ||sfm: <FSR: Wow. White must have had a win somewhere.>
Right. According to below mentioned paper there are several winning moves, e.g. 13.Qd4! and also 25.Rd4 (preventing Black from covering the lucrative square f5 with 25.-,Qd5 or -,Bd3), with the simple idea 26.Qf5 after which Black rapidly dies. Re7 is a crushing threat and there's no good way to prevent it as all lines with -,Ra8-e8 loses instantly.|
|Nov-10-06|| ||The17thPawn: <sfm> - Where's the win after 25.Rd4, Re8? Seems to force simplification with black a pawn up. Any feedback is welcome.|
|Nov-10-06|| ||mang00neg: Ba3+ 1-0|
|Nov-10-06|| ||The17thPawn: <mang00neg> - Thanks for the help missed that entirely.|

It's kind of like Futurama or American Dad; you're never quite sure if it's actually funny or if you just expect it to be funny so you pretend it is.|
|Nov-10-06|| ||babakova: It is actually not very funny at all.|
|Nov-11-06|| ||Rocafella: 41.Bd4+ how come that wasn't played?|
