  kevin86: White's attack focuses on e6! Once he gets enough control of that square, the win comes very fast.

  notsodeepthought: White's name makes for a perfect pun, great job, <> ... on the other side, Black would have had to give an Arman' a leg to stop the attack.

  al wazir: Black was fine until 35...Qa5. He could have just played a nothing move like Re7 or Rb6 and it would have been a draw.
Jun-02-06  makaveli52: yeah it did not really look like white was making much progress, black seems to have a pretty solid defense, until he gives up the exchange sac. White did have the initiative and more active position, however, so it could have made for a tight long endgame, in which white may have been able to convert

  An Englishman: Good Evening: The move I don't like is 21...f6, creating a weak e-pawn in the first place. 21...b5, 22...a5 and 23...b4 comes to mind. White could answer with f2-f4, threatening f4-f5, but Black can if necessary reply ...g7-g6, and we have an interesting struggle in progress.

  EmperorAtahualpa: Great pun! Not so exciting game. Black totally missed what was so important about his queen defending the knight.
Jun-02-06  JonONeill: Move 23 = Alekhine's gun, I think.
Jun-02-06  Robert De Leon Jr.: <JonONeill: Move 23 = Alekhine's gun, I think.> It's not, but this would be a reverse Alekhine's Gun. The correct way is setting up the queen behind both rooks as in: Alexander Alekhine vs Aron Nimzowitsch "Under the Gun" (game of the day Jul-11-05)

  ajile: This is the London System which is one of the Colle System variants. White gets the solid Colle structure with pawns on d4,c3 and e3 BUT he gets the queen bishop outside the pawn chain. Black should have chased the bishop before White could play h3 since after h3 the bishop can hide on h2 and put pressure on Black's q-side. White gets a persistent slight advantage for the whole game and after f6 by Black he proceeds to pile up on the weak Black e pawn. Maybe instead of 21..f6 Black could have tryed b5-b4 to try to get counterplay on the q-side.
