Thanks! I'd make 'em forget Colonel Moreau.

Jul-26-11  Marmot PFL: Thought I understood white's play fairly well, but had some trouble figuring out black's.
Jul-26-11  Akavall: <keypusher>I am not sure about that. If anything Biel has fewer rounds than the event Moreau played in.

Yes, but I would play more minatures.

Jul-26-11  Akavall: That doesn't really say much, since Moreau only played one game that was shorter than 20 moves.

LOL

Jul-27-11  arnaud1959: < checkmateyourmove: the manuevers to trap the black rook are brilliant > I agree, but I don't understand why white didn't play 22.Nd5 with the same idea.

Moro may have thought that the exchange of b-pawns and keeping MVL's c-pawn isolated and backwards were worth the extra moves.
