  perfidious: Brutal Justice was meted out in this middlegame after White neglected defence of f2, that traditional hot spot in open games (along with twin f7).

This variation with 6....d6 is unfamiliar to me: the line I used long ago was the far more common 6....Nge7, after which Opening Explorer has no less than fifteen seventh moves played for White!

  Domdaniel: Nice game. When the Black Knights become active it's really all over.

At the end, of course, ...Ne2+ will win the White Queen.

  OhioChessFan: Pretty good pun to wait over 4 years to use.

  OrangeTulip: Looking at the page of Sana, you could argue Sanitas sanitatum omnia santitas
Feb-01-19  goodevans: Oblivious to the threats, white sends his R as far from the action as he can. If he'd left it where it was he'd have been fine.

Watch your back
or he'll counterattack!

Feb-01-19  Saniyat24: beautiful...the power of two knights on the White's fourth rank...

  thegoodanarchist: Well done, <FSR>, as per your usual!

Poor ol' Bernie Sanders, I hope he doesn't see today's pun. It might remind him of how the "Democratic" Party rigged the game against him in the last presidential election.

Feb-01-19  dumbgai: David Justice was a pretty good baseball player.

  wtpy: 24 Rh3 seems to begin the bad plan. 24 Rf8 Qf8 25 Ra7 is level.

  Fusilli: Oh, I just realized a game of mine was featured recently. Thank you <CG>. True, <FSR> came up with the pun years ago!

32.Kh1 was a blunder. 32.Ra2 keeps it even.

A year after this game, David missed his chance to get even: D Justice vs M Sana, 2010.

(See comments to that game.)

Arguably, that was a worse miscarriage of justice!
