  wtpy: 16 Nf3 ouch. So you know you should get punished when you move a piece off a square and then a couple of moves later put it back. The chess gods don't like that.

  perfidious: The trapper trapped.

It was na´ve of White to expect that a top-class GM had plumped for this without examining the idea more deeply.

  Dionysius1: Nigel Short said something a few years back about the difference between IMs and GMs being the quality of tactics. I don't particularly like his brashness, but he speaks a lot of sense (he must be used to the first bit, and the second bit is just a fact :-) )

  morfishine: Mr. Tate needed to move his DSB, almost anywhere. He had the opportunity, even as late as move 18 just prior to the disaster. Its mystery why he didn't

  HeMateMe: Nak's been quiet of late but this brutal 21 move punch out reminds you of his chess talent.

  perfidious: A while back, I read of a top player--believe it was someone else--who made an analogous remark noted by <Dionysius1> re the difference between GMs and IMs.
Feb-09-18  myprecious23: 21.....Nd5!! How did I ever enter this Predicament. This move is like beating someone with a 2 by 2 plank. But sometimes it happens to the best of us when we go pawn hunting.
