Oct-25-11  Blunderdome: Y Shulman vs Le Quang Liem, 2011
Oct-25-11  checkmateyourmove: this is rare, leiner has more than one win in a tourney..lol.. but this is not his usual strong gm tourney.
Oct-25-11  nolanryan: glad that politics could be set aside, to invite such an awesome cuban player (to a tournament in TX no less!)
Oct-26-11  Marmot PFL: Looks like there are players in the B group much lower rated than GM Finegold (group C). probably he is there to give others in the group a chance for a norm.

Is this game not the all-time best example of an <OPPOSITE-COLORED BISHOP ATTACK>?

The final position is worth a thousand words.

Oct-26-11  pericles of athens: <blunderdome> is the funniest screen name on this site!!! love it.
Nov-06-11  Mendrys: It's nice to see an international chess tournament held in my hometown, Lubbock, TX. Much thanks to Susan Polgar.
