Oct-09-07  somitra: This deserves to be GOTD one day. What a nice game.
Oct-09-07  khursh: superb! This queen sacrifice will never be a Monday puzzle, too difficult. And a good game to learn endgames. Are there many games with ♘ ♖ ♖ vs ♕ ♖ ?

  whiteshark: Is there any deep strategy behind, that I don't get ? Or is it just 300 the points that make the difference ?

In spite of that 'Hats off!'

Oct-09-07  khursh: I especially like the move 38.♘e5 allowing attack on both c6 and f7 pawns. This is a case when a knight is stronger than a queen :)
