Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-07-06  hellstrafer: 22.. Nb6 is a blunder, because after that move checkmate is inevitable no matter how black moves. He should have played 22.. Qf8 instead and then if 23. Qxa7 Qc5+ and force an excange of the quuens. Then the extra rook would be decisive.
Oct-07-06  sneaky pete: The extra rook <would> be decisive at move 1, if black were any good. By this time he has already blundered away a minor piece, and after 22... Qf8 23.Na4 b6 24.Ba6# is more in style.
Oct-08-06  hellstrafer: <sneaky pete><The extra rook be decisive at move 1>

Agreed :) But this is the infamous NN so you should cut the guy some slack.

Feb-22-08  wolfmaster: NN.... so oblivious.
Dec-11-08  WhiteRook48: And even if the BK could move, White takes the Black Q behind him. 1-0
Dec-13-08  WhiteRook48: What happened to NN?
Dec-19-08  WhiteRook48: I wonder what NN's rating is. Probably between 0 and 10. :)
Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: 23...Rf8 was better.
Dec-23-08  sneaky pete: 23... Rf8 24.Qc7#
Dec-23-08  YoungEd: Black blows it with 18. ...Qxd4+? That allows White to bring back his Bishop (which the Black rook should have taken). Black does pick up a couple of pawns, but that just opens up the position for White's attack.
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: 23...Kd7 was better.
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: wait a minute then 24. Qc7# forgot the rook controlled that e-file
Jan-19-09  WhiteRook48: every move after 22...Nb6 is enjoying to watch...
Jan-19-09  WhiteRook48: why 15...0-0-0? white can just later have the diagonal for the f4-Bishop opened.
Feb-07-09  WhiteRook48: someone should analyze this game
Jun-26-09  just a kid: <Whiterook48>Why don't you?
Jun-26-09  just a kid: 18...Qxd4+? is horrible.This allows all of White's pieces get into the attack with tempo since they attacked the queen.
