  HeMateMe: Not worthy of this tournament.
Jan-13-15  shintaro go: Good job succeeded in not embarrassing yourself by making a quick draw.
Jan-13-15  Ulhumbrus: In his commentary Seirawan indicated 11...Bf5! 12 Re1 Nxe5 13 Nxe5 dxe5 and then the combinatorial possibility of ...Bc5 followed by ...Bxf2+! eg 14 Qe2 Bc5 15 Qxe5 Bxf2+ 16 Kxf2 Bd3+. This Lasker type possibility seems useful to know about. It makes use of Black's semi open f file.

  Reisswolf: Can Black not win a pawn with 18..♗xh3? What is the immediate refutation?
