Apr-24-09  wanabe2000: In 1973 GM Szabo played 20 club members with 16 wins 3 draws and only one loss to Jerome Lerman. Here is that game. Szabo vs Lerman Jerome, 1973.
Apr-28-09  True2theGame: Well Done! I found your trade of spacial advatage for an edge in development in the opening both intersting and crafty. Equally impressed with how the middlegame tactics were handled. To draw a GM (with black) not an easy feat... Bravo!

  technical draw: Nice game <wanabe2000>. Very brave of you to first put your King then your Queen on the same file as the enemy rook. At move 30 I would have already considered the game a success given that it was against a first rate GM.
Jun-11-09  wanabe2000: <technical draw> <True2theGame> Thank you both for reviewing my game against GM Szabo and for your kind comments and encouragement.9....h5 (good or bad) was a novelty. Still not found in the Chessgames Database. The resource 18....Qg6 saved me and finally, 44....a5+ secured the draw. Thanks again.
