  jeff sarwer: 13.Qb3 Qc7 14.Qa3 Na5 15.Bd3 c4 16.Bb1 I think is better for White, and 1 move later when I played 14.Qb3? (With the following illusions seen by the game continuation)I think 14.Qc2 would have still been just fine for White..

  jeff sarwer: or even 14. f4!?
Oct-23-07  Riverbeast: I agree with your first note, it looks like white is better with any one of those continuations
Feb-03-08  cruiseyleemorph: Congrats on your recent tournament Jeff. Was that really your 1st since school? Did u fall out of love with chess? I myself was a prodigy but not on the level you or Joshua were. At 6 I was beating my parents after I learned the moves at 4 years old. I won many local tourneys and was my school champion every year from 8 to 11 then fell out of chess due to everyone in secondary school calling it a sissys game and almost forced me to play football by making me feel guilty for loving it. I have no idea how good I could have become and only now play to a strength of 1500/1600. 18 years out of chess is such a long time and I am sure I was better at 8/9 than I am now. And good luck on your little come back Jeff, I would love to see a re match between you and Josh ;-)
Feb-03-08  cruiseyleemorph: And a comment on the game? I am suprised you resigned here? Rdd2 keeps you in the game and he ha only has slight edge?
May-28-09  seansurfgood: cruisey look a little harder at Rdd2..
here's the variation...very simple really:
23...Rxd5 24. Rxd5 Bxd5 24. Qxd5 Qxc2
Apr-20-17  cruiseyleemorph: Seansurf, If 23 Rxd5 white wins with Rxe4. Look a little harder. If Nxc4 then Rxd5.
