  patzer2: Wow! This game by the newly crowned World correspondence chess champion is a great lesson in how to play with the extra piece in exchange for a three pawn deficit. Umansky demonstrates great technique and skill in accomplishing this difficult task in correspondence play.

I suppose some players will be cranking up their Fritz 8 software to see if white's play is sound. For now, I'm content to offer a tip of the hat and congratualations to the new world correspondence champion -- Mikhail Umansky.

  RandomVisitor: Should the world team expect 6.Bg2? Possibly...
Feb-26-09  WhiteRook48: congratulations to the person who thinks he will win the World Team. Umansky's next move will probably be 6. Bg2
