  jessicafischerqueen: Nobody can resist the <worm mold> attack!!
Aug-05-07  apple pi: 21. Nxe7+? wastes tempi and discards a powerful knight it seems - was black's dark bishop good enough for THAT?

  RandomVisitor: 11...Nxg4 might have been playable by black.

13.g5 was a nice way to continue white's attack.

16.Be3 might have been white's last chance to keep a small advantage, after that the game initiative tilts toward black.

  MacFyffe: I'm going to have to agree with <apple pi>. Why sac for black's dark bishop that was pretty locked up anyway.

  fm avari viraf: By the way, who's playing the Wormald attack, White or Black? Well, Black's penetration & command on the c-file is commendable.

  Cactus: What's the point of 11.g4?
Premium Chessgames Member
  RandomVisitor: <Cactus>After 11.g4 Nxg4 12.Rg1 d5! 13.h3 Nf6 14.Bxh6 White gets the pawn back with some attack, but the machines favor Black at this point.

Perhaps White missed 12...d5 in the above line. If Black plays 12...Nf6, for example, then 13.Bxh6 and white now has a more equal game.

Aug-05-07  D. M. Walles: Was 14.h5 really the correct way to progress the attack? It seems like white threw a speed bump in his own path by closing lines.

  kevin86: Mate will follow by :47...♕e1+ 48 ♖f2 ♖h3# A high quality Arabian-type mate in which that white has no answer.

  jessicafischerqueen: <Mount Etna> is an active volcano.

Just saying.
