Feb-08-06  Chessography: This guy was rated 2200? I can play ten times better than that!
Feb-08-06  Chessography: What is wrong with 26... cxb2 ????? It just looks like it is winning outright for Black. I can not see White's saving throw here. Example: 27. Kxb2, 27... Qc2+
27. Rf2, 27... Qc1+ mates.
27. Rf1, 27... Qc2#

I see no way for Black to overcome these threats in one move besides the stupid computerish Qxg6+ or Qxh7+. These guys are supposed to be masters and I'm a patzer!

Feb-17-06  McCool: What is white doing? First he does some weird sicilian, then a crappy rook sacrafice? 2200 honestly.
May-20-07  IMDONE4: 2200 playing until checkmate against an IM strength... r u kiddin me?
Sep-15-12  The Last Straw: These people are so overrated!! I'm rated about 1200 and I play better chess than them!!

  FSR: This game is total crap. If you subtracted 800 points from each player's rating it would be a lot more believable.

  perfidious: The first sentence of <FSR>'s post is an understatement, and the second may well be generous-to White, at least!

If this game got the axe, the DB would be none the worse.

  FSR: <perfidious> I debated whether to write "800" or "1000." I may have chosen wrong.
