Feb-15-10  DiscoJew: first. :)

What a fluid black game. Logical opening, to logical central expansion, followed by converting this space (e5-f5)into a kingside attack.

Loek looked way behind in development here, and Maxime's threats became to much to handle. Incredible stuff.

  tamar: 27...Nc4! is a wonderful move.

The knight parachutes in and paralyzes White's counterplay at the same time.

Feb-15-10  KarAkter: Very precise play by black!8...Bc3N,all moves except 15...f5 and 17...Kh8 are also Rybka first or second choice(max depth 17).Just for the record:-)
Feb-15-10  shintaro go: Van Wely has hit a new low in his career. Getting mated in the middle of the board.

  Dr. Funkenstein: This game reminds me of the many times I've gotten into horrible tangles in the KID or English openings where your pieces have limited squares and you can never seem to wriggle out of your opponent's increasing pressure.
