Dec-20-05  suenteus po 147: Is it Karel Opocensky 's name that's attached to the Sicilian, Najdorf, Opocensky Variation (B92)?

  Gypsy: In the 1930's, Opocensky turned an opening iconoclast and played many early games with e5-Sicilians, Volga/Benko gambit, and or Trompovsky.
May-23-09  Hugh the Drover: Black, down 6-5 in pawns in the late middle game in an equal position, rallies and is up 4-3 as his King closes things out in relief. Same color bishops do mid-relief, no-decision work. The win is given to the King (now 1-0, his 11th appearance on the mound in this still young season).

  wwall: After 45...Bb4, 46. Rc4 looks like the only move. 46.Rc2? Be1+ 47. Kg2 Rxf4. 46.Rc1? Rxf4 47.Kxf4 Bd2+. 46.Re3? Rxf4 47.Kxf4 Bd6+ 48.Re5+ Bxe5+.

Perhaps 49.Bb8 is the losing move. Better may be 49.Be3 Bxh4 50.f4 a6 51.f5 gxf5 52.Kh3 Be1 53.g6 Bc3 54.Kh4.
