Lawrence
Member since Sep-29-03 · Last seen Jan-22-09
I love Morphy and Capablanca but suspect that Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov are greater than either of them.

I live just outside Barcelona, and am a retired English teacher. Expatriate Canadian, 40 years in Spain. Chess is a way to keep my neurons and synapses active.

Lawrence: <who>, so that's the reason I can't beat Garry! As Pope said--Alexander, not John Paul II--<A little learning is a dangerous thing>.

Lawrence: <DrKurtPhart>, sorry, but I sink your English is at a stillstand.

Lawrence: <psmith>, <Bxa1 or Bxe4 would have been much better> doesn't mean that Black is ahead. As you say, White has good play, but Black isn't taking a shellacking. In your first line Junior would not play 24.....Rd5 but 24.....Kh8. Then, after 25.Nf7+ Rxf7 26.Qxf7 White is up
