Aug-11-04  suenteus po 147: That's a nasty little trap the king is caught in there at the end. Even if the queen had access, it probably wouldn't make much difference.

Aug-11-04  Shadout Mapes: In Sneaky's collection "Players I Know" he mentions he's friends with Albert Artidiello. I guess that explains why he seems to be the oldest member of this site.

Aug-11-04  killaa: Is there anything wrong with 21. ♗e6 with the intention of pinning the black ♕?

  Honza Cervenka: <killaa> 21.Be6 Qxe6 loses material.
Aug-11-04  killaa: You're right, <Honza>, thanks.
Aug-11-04  Helloween: <18.Rxf5 deserved attention> You're right, Honza. 18.Rxf5 brings another heavy piece into the assault on the Kingside, possibly going to h5 to bear down on the h7-pawn.

A very forceful finish indeed by Onischuk beginning with 24...Qxf1+. That dark Bishop anchored on d4 is a powerhouse and the main strength of Black's position from move 15 throughout the remainder of the game.

As I stated on his page the other day, in my opinion, Onischuk is the strongest player in the United States.

Aug-11-04  poktirity: Whats the problem with 19.Bxe6 (19...Rxe6 20.Qg4)?
Aug-11-04  Helloween: <poktirity> 19.Bxe6 Rxe6 20.Qg4+ Qg6 looks great for Black.

  kevin86: On losing games,I am reminded that in his "My Fifty Years of Chess",Frank Marshall lost the first game-to Steinitz,the World Champion. The author admitted to having "Underestimating his opponent".
Premium Chessgames Member <18.Rxf5 deserved attention.> That's exactly what Onischuk said to Albert after the game. We'll stick crafty on it in a minute.

Apr-26-07  PolishPentium: 13 dxc6 e.p. was clearly in order. Never pass up the chance for an "el passante" capture if it's available and beneficial, as this one would be...^^
