Apr-26-05  Elrathia Kingi: 31...Qe4! Impressive move by the Russian master, exploiting the classic "back row mate." An ingenious move to defeat an ingenious player.

  Honza Cervenka: Quite interesting detail here is the fact that (with little differences in order of moves) the position after the 11th move of black appeared also in previous (i.e. 12th) game of the same match but with reversed colours. Bogo continued 12. a3 but got into troubles after 12...Bxc3 13. bxc3 Qxa3 14. Nxe5 Nxe5 15. dxe5 Re8 16. Bg3 Be6 17. O-O Rad8 18. Qc2 Nxc3 . Alekhine's solution looks more satisfactory for white but in the end he suffered defeat as well. 31.Bxa4 was a blunder following by pretty puzzle candidate shot 31...Qe4! but the position white was already pretty troublesome.
Mar-05-08  Knight13: I played 6...Qa5 against a class A player in one of my OTB games and he played c5 instead of cxd5 and I started to suffer... Managed to get a draw but wasn't fun. Plugged into my comp later and it agreed with my opponent that c5 is definitely better move.
