  Eric Schiller: A tragic end to a nice game. I missed an easy win by checking at f5 instead of h5, and fell into a mating pattern I hadn't seen before. The moral of the game is: if you don't finish your opponent off when you can, he'll often come back and bite you!
Mar-25-05  Knezh: Very good notes, Mr. Schiller! I especially enjoyed the fact that unlike many annotators you were self-conscious and didn't try to hide your mistakes.
Mar-29-05  who: 41...Rf4+ 42.Kxf4 Rc7 43.Rxc7 and only then is it mate in 1.

  patzer2: This is an instructive game, both from the standpoint of honest annotations by a strong National Master, and some interesting tactics. I particularly enjoyed the unusual winning deflection combination 25...Qh5!, which Black unfortunately missed, and the rather unique mating pattern White played for mate-in-four with 39. Bf8+!
Apr-12-05  aw1988: Oh, lord. That is a terrible end, to an extremely nice game. A shame, but brilliant notes.
Jun-02-06  siggemannen: It's funny browsing randomly through chessgames i stumbled upon this game and wow, i just had the exact same mating pattern in my blitz game today but i was black and i mated my opponent.

Really weird coinsidence

Sep-12-10  BISHOP TAL: At move 25 Eric gives a line, In that line move 29 knight f6 check doubleing the f pawns then Rxb6, why isnt that better? what am i missing.
