  An Englishman: Good Evening: Twas perhaps folly to play The Folly on this particular day. Kramer's Exchange sacrifice looks pretty good seeing as the Rook penetrated the Queen side to sacrifice itself in the center for a King side attack.
Jan-10-18  jerseybob: When does subtlety become artificiality? Not always easy to tell in the heat of battle, but Santasiere definitely crosses that line in this game.
Jan-10-18  WorstPlayerEver: 22...fxe3 23. Qxe3 c5 24. Qe1 c4 seems strong

Jan-10-18  jerseybob: <WorstPlayerEver: 22...fxe3 23. Qxe3 c5 24. Qe1 c4 seems strong> But strong for whom?
Jan-10-18  WorstPlayerEver: <jerseybob>

Strong for Black.

Jan-12-18  jerseybob: I also meant to mention that 20.Bxf6?! looks like a blooper, and 20.Bc3 looks better, keeping a watch on b2.
