  FSR: 2.Qh5!? is the dreaded Parham Attack, named for Mr. Parham. Black's 2...Nc6! improves on 2...Ke7 3.Qxe5#, as in E Schiller vs H Pack, 1969
Apr-02-11  jbtigerwolf: 28...h4. What's wrong with 28...Bxf4? It looks like White is over-committed: 28...Bxf4 29.Re4 Bg5 30.Be3 Qa4 31.Bf5+ Kh6 32.Bxg5+ Kxg5 33.h4+ Kh6. White checks have run out. Black has some chance to win. The text move 28...h4 does not seem to consider 29.f5+.
Oct-30-12  YoungEd: White managed to circumvent the Losoff the game.

<"Chess has been compared with art an music. Art has its Grandma Moses. Music has its punk. Chess has Bernie Parham.">
