  Nigel Short: 12...b6?? was an awful move, but otherwise it wasn't such bad play for a nine year-old kid. Very resilient defence, in fact, and tactically quite astute.
Nov-11-10  BobCrisp: Ah, come on, <Nige>, he gave you the draw. It wasn't your fault, you were just a kid.

Jun-14-11  DrMAL: 32.Nd6 instead of 32.Qg5 is a wee bit suspicious.
[+9.00] d=1 32.Qg5 Kg7 33.Ng3 Kh7 (0:00:00) 0kN
[+1.07] d=1 32...Qxb2 33.Nxf7 Rxf7 (0:00:00) 0kN

Otherwise, an amazing game from such a young child!
