  kevin86: How about 30 ...♖c1!! Of course the rook cannot be taken on penalty of mate

On move 35,white is lost as black simply returns his rook to c1 and wins the hapless bishop. If His Excellency moves away-he is called back by ♖c1+ and mate next.

Sep-15-04  rclb: Sensational game!
Sep-15-04  molinov: Why 23. Bxe7 instead of fxe4?.
Sep-16-04  Rowson: The move that gets to me in this one is 21.Qa2 instead of Qxb6. is there a Queen trap involved in the capture of the pawn. if so i can't see it. and why a2 and not c2?
Sep-17-04  rndapology: 21.Qxb6 Nd7 and bishop is lost for two pawns...and white's position looks not so good after that. To be honest... that light bishop is bad and the knight looks en route but it takes way too long. Qc2 does look better, but I have not really looked at it too much.
Sep-17-04  MoonlitKnight: Hey, go easy on the exclams, people!!! I hardly think black's 21st is worth three! ;)

Of course, receive eternal impunity to ridiculing and is above all criticism after this self-ironic pun. I bet that's the only reason why this game was chosen.

Sep-26-04  Rowson: Do you think it's safe to say that this variation of the sicillian with 5.Nb5 isn't sound for white. i've haven't been game to play it since Karpov lost so horribly to kasparov with it.
Sep-26-04  Rowson: That game being Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
