  Stonehenge: Kruel indeed.
Mar-11-15  RookFile: White was in cruise control in this game.
Mar-11-15  ninja warrior: painful... nice pawn sac.
Mar-11-15  morfishine: Gotta love White's pawn play. In reality, Black's move-sequence is borderline silly: Having doubled-rooks, he then proceeds to strand one on <a6>

He must've read Znosko-Borovsky's book "How not to Play Chess" and thought thats the way to actually play chess

  kevin86: A nearly inescapable mate will win the queen.
Mar-11-15  Castleinthesky: Got to be Kruel to be Kind! Black's first weak move is 18...NB4 meant to chase the White queen away. However, the White Queen is not really attacking anything and Black simply loses a tempo. Black's fatal move is 25...cxb5, which allows white to create the steamroller.
Mar-11-15  Jack Kerouac: <OhioChessFan> That comment was absolutely mandatory. So iconic.
