  catlover: I love this pun! 30...c2 was indeed a Force-full move that defeated Mr. Sith.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Remarkable how White cannot stop the c-pawn. 29.bxc4, as bad as it looks with ...Bc5+ coming, might have been the last chance to prolong the agony.
Jun-01-17  paavoh: Perhaps 26.Qg4 displaced the Queen from defense: c3 covered, Bg2-f1 available.
Jun-01-17  Pasker: White blundered a move and lost the game like a beginner. Nothing special.

That's true but it's hard to find a good square because if 26. Qf2/Qe3 then c4. with the threat of pinning the Q with Bc5 and then if 27. Rxd8 Rxd8 28. Rxd8 Qxd8 black is still winning with all the back-rank, passed pawn and pinning threats (I think).

  ajk68: 14. e4, left me wondering about the caliber of the player.

16. Qf3, yes let's put another piece on the blocked diagonal.

20. b3, I would have retreated the bishop.

Jun-01-17  Crowaholic: FWIW, Deep Shredder 13 considers 24. Rad1 to be a poor move, ostensibly for preventing Nd1 after ..b4 (with a chance to block off the c5-g1 diagonal), and suggests 24. Rc2. Also, in the line as played, 26. Qe1 appears to be the "least worst" option.

  morfishine: Very unimpressive "GOTD"

What do you expect when a GM plays some Schlepp, from god knows where, who has at total of 1 game in the database???

<CG> really shouldn't waste the viewing public's time with such irrelevant games


Jun-01-17  ColeTrane: Also known as, "The Last Good Star Wars Movie".... At least reminds us of that Skywalker OG Kush ... notes of sour lemons and pine.
