Mar-01-06  Everett: Kosten showcases the Botvinnik Attack in his book The Dynamic English.
Mar-22-06  Everett: 22.Re7!
Apr-30-07  KokeFischer: 24. ... Rfe8 = hara kiri!
It seems that black wanted to finish early.
Jun-25-07  piroflip: No, he would not have wanted to finish early. Black is actually a very strong player, considering that he is totally blind. He finished second in the world Braille chess champs in the 80s, and is a very pleasant chap to boot. I played him twice in local league stuff (both with black) and got wasted
Nov-11-12  vinidivici: this is a good game.

25.Rxe8+ is a nice little trick there.
