|May-20-10|| ||Moose Malloy: Fantastic squeeze by Adams. He won the "unwinnable".|
|Apr-14-12|| ||sevenseaman: Getting the very last drop of juice out of it; if you can then why not?|
Greed to grab a P (19...Rxc5) cost Polzin the exchange a few moves later. For Adams, a good tactician too, the decision to simplify & grind out a win must have been made there.
|Apr-14-12|| ||JohnBoy: Are either of the 13...Nxd4 playable?|
|Apr-14-12|| ||whiteshark: Didn't Adams win against Hydra in the same way?|
|Apr-14-12|| ||hugogomes: 13...Nfxd4 is not possible, because 14.Na4 wins a piece. Ncxd4 is possible, but leads to a small positional disadvantage after 14.Nxd5. trading the knights first with 14.Nxd4 doesnt work because 14... Qxd4!|
|Apr-14-12|| ||whiteshark: The 'tricky' <25.Be3> was worth considering.|
|Apr-14-12|| ||Ratt Boy: Whoo boy. I couldn't figure out why 13...Ncxd4 wasn't possible. I was thinking 14.Nxd5, Nxe2+ would win a piece for Black.|
Haha...I guess it wouldn't hurt for me to look at the position to see where White's King is.
|Apr-14-12|| ||rudiment: White's 47. f3, enabling both the removal of the N defender and the rook advance, is a gem of a move.|
|Apr-14-12|| ||rudiment: What if 53... Ke8 instead?|
|Apr-14-12|| ||fokers13: Maybe g5 threatening Rh4 and Rh8#?|
|Apr-14-12|| ||kevin86: Funny how black has the passed pawns,but it is white who wins the game! White's exchange advantage wins later.|
|Apr-14-12|| ||JohnBoy: Thanks, <hugo> - like <Ratt> said - <I guess it wouldn't hurt for me to look at the position to see where White's King is.> Needless to say, the white monarch is not at g1.|

The game concluded 54.Rxf3 1-0 but did Black resign too early?
