  perfidious: <FSR> A second encounter was less one-sided (M Esserman vs J Sarkar, 2008), as Black was in control before he misplayed the endgame.

  FSR: <perfidious> Yes, Esserman was quite lucky to escape in that game. In addition to White being a pawn down for nothing, his bishop on h6 was ghastly.
