Mar-05-17  Dirkster: Nice aggressive play by Black ending with the kicker 24...Ng3+! forcing White to throw in the towel. (Yeah, it sounds almost like a martial arts event!!)

  Gilmoy: <10..Ne4> bravely sacs a pawn for space.

<16..c5 17..h5> drives off both defenders of <19..Bf5>, with a withering crossfire.

White's K-side pawns used up four tempi, and I disagreed with all four of them. <9.h3> is the novelty in this game, and the <10.g4> idea is probably just too slow if Black responds with vim.

<21.h4 Bg4> is particularly stark: from bad to wirc ("weerts").
