  wwall: Knott a good game. 39.Qf5?? has to be one of the worst moves ever, dropping a queen like that in a won position. White was winning after 30...Qf6? (Black had to play 30...Bxd4), winning a pawn with 31.Nxf5. Then he wins the exchange after 35...Rc7? (35...Rc7 looked best), allowing 36.Be6, pinning rook and king.

If Knott, why Knott?

  wwall: The Knott was untied. Knott that it mattered. Same opening was played in Knottingham.
