Mar-28-15  goodevans: Humpy was winning this until the disastrous <34.Re1? Re3 35.Qc1??> leaving her open to the lethal N-fork <35...Nd3>. The N is immune to capture because of the attack on b2.

Playing <34.Qc1> a move earlier would have been fine for white.

Mar-28-15  Steve.Patzer: <goodevans> I believe you meant the attack on g2?
Mar-28-15  goodevans: Yes, indeed. Thanks.
