  vonKrolock: A very original combination in the "Pearl of Dresden", Segal's most famous game, and still (!) lacking here - a PGN following, but here already, for those who want a preview <Sorin, me desculpe por não ter percebido antes a falta...>

Aug-14-07  THE pawn: Very nice game!

18...Ng3! was a powerful blow.

Was 23.Qxf8+ the only plausible move for black?

  vonKrolock: <THE pawn> For me it seems that the combinated threat over 'c1' and of a check in 'h6' forced the ♕ surrendering

  vonKrolock: I'm sure he's a potential GM - not only for his tactical abilities, but also because of his wide knowledge and fine concepts in positional play - maybe lacked to him the systematical ambition and fighting mood...

  vonKrolock: :) Opening night in an Open - the venue was Thalia's Society Gymnasium, covered but quite spacious and ventilated. Middle May is still southern Autumn, but in that night the polar air arrived quickly with it's grim grip... The players from Chile, Uruguay etc, surrounded tha head organizer: "How we will play in this freezing chamber?!" - "Sorry, the wave of cold arrived sudenly and untimely - But, please, wrap You better just for this night, and tomorrow we will provide gas for the heating..." - "Wrap - how? We came for a tournament in Brazil, not in Antarctica - nobody carried more than a jumper or so... We will freeze to death befroe the fourth hour". In this moment arrives... Segal, from São Paulo - With a heavy coat, wool trousers, and a furred cap - He was ready not just for a cold night in southern highlands, but for a whole winter in transilvanian alps: "Hello, guys... What about starting soon the first round!?"
