  whiteshark: That is a comedy of a game for us. At the end <26. Bh6 ??> is a tragedy for white.

With <26. e6 Bd6 27. exf7+ Kxf7 28.Qf3+ Kg8 29. Re1 Be4> the game is even.

Aug-21-07  duffer: black doesn't have to retreat the bishop on move 26; taking the pawn is safe.

  whiteshark: <duffer> I disagree. Your suggested pawn grabbing will loose either Bc5 or Bd3:

26... Qxe6 27. Bxc5
26... fxe6 27. Bxc5 Qxc5 28. Qxd3

26... Bd6 is th only playable move here.

  notBowen: After Nxe4 I usually play 6... Bxc6 bxc6 7... Nxe5

Is d4 the better continuation?

Aug-01-12  Abdel Irada: Following the example of the spectators in the famed Levitsky-Marshall game, when onlookers saw Black's ...♕xg3, they showered the board. Unfortunately, they were out of gold pieces, so they had to use lutefisk.

Somehow the effect wasn't quite the same.
