|May-22-07|| ||Duque Roquero: Nice game and comments. At once I believed that 48. Qxe2 threatened mate at e8, but the black Queen result to be beautifully posted on that a3-f8 diagonal, then 48. … c1=Q without a problem.|
|May-22-07|| ||iccsumant: Why didn't chessgames.com post the title as "Edward fried a man"?|
|May-22-07|| ||jmrulez2004: yeah.,..

|May-22-07|| ||Mizerak: I met Billy Colias during my years in the Midwest. He seemed the type to keep attacking, sometimes beyond prudence, but his games were pretty exciting to see, whether he won or lost. I hope they have some of his wins on chessgames.|
|May-22-07|| ||psmith: A couple of notes after running through this quickly with Fritz 5.32.|
Fritz doesn't like 24... Nxb2. It thinks that 24... Nf4 secures equality for Black.
27. Ra2? looks like a mistake. Fritz thinks 27. Rxb4 is winning for White, for example 27. Rxb4 a2 28. Nb3 d5 29. c5 d4 30. Bd2 and apparently Black doesn't have enough for the piece.
After 27. Ra2 Fritz prefers all of 27...Nf4, 27... Rcb8, 27... h6 and 27...Ra4 to the move played, 27...d5. This move should lose, as Schiller notes, after 30. exd5 (rather than 30. Rxc8?)
In Schiller's line 38.Qe3 Nf4 39.h3!, Fritz indicates that rather than 39...h6, Black should play simply 39... Qd3 40. Qxd3 Nxd3 41. Kg2 e4 42. Nd4 c1/Q 43. Bxc1 Nxc1 44. Kf2 h6 with at least a draw for Black.
|May-22-07|| ||ray keene: is anyone still in contact with edward friedman?i played him in the same event and its one of my few score sheets which i have mislaid-i wd very much like to contact him to see if he kept the moves-help anyone!!|
|May-22-07|| ||kevin86: Those powerful pawns! The a and b- pawns cost white a rook and then the e-pawn cost him his queen. With all of that power,black could sac a piece now and then-no trouble.|
Note the quaint set up after move 41-Not only is the p p q Q setup funny,but note all pawns are on opposite color squares-8/8
|May-22-07|| ||fm avari viraf: An appropriate pun "A Blast from the Passed". Indeed, the passed pawns played havoc in this thrilling encounter.|
