Apr-03-06  outplayer: Its incredible. White turns a position with a bad bishop into a win.
Apr-03-06  Open Defence: <outplayer> by keeping his dark squared Bishop on the c1 - h6 diagonal during moves 50-60 White "activated" the Bishop. In most cases since the "bad" bishop cannot be so activated, it is a disadvantage, however if it can be activated it can be turned into a strength as well especially nearing the end game
Oct-31-06  Sularus: black had to sac a pawn to free his rook. harhar
Feb-25-07  aazqua: Yes. It was an incredibly poorly played ending by black. At move 48 black can exchange rooks with a guaranteed draw - not sure if there are chances for a win. All of black's pawns will be on white squares and black's king will be more active. I'm sure black thought he might exploit winning chances until suddenly he discovered that he lost the game. Ughh. Not sure why this is a notable game for Paragua as it is really a major screwup by his opponent who clearly had the advantage for the first 50 moves.
Dec-05-07  russs: 48. .. r x r !
Dec-15-14  kamagong24: nice game nevertheless :p
