May-27-04  600POUNDGORILLA: if 34. ...Bxf5 then 35. QXR!#, RxQ, 36. BxQ.....and white wins the exchange. Can anybody see anything better?
May-27-04  Lawrence: <600>, welcome, and <dk>, the same to you!! We've missed you for these past 2 months. Where ya been, studying for exams?

Junior 8 says 34...♗xf5 is the best move but Black's position is so bad that he ought to resign.

May-27-04  refutor: <600poungorilla> i've got to say the is a great site...the CFC and USCF should take notice
May-27-04  600POUNDGORILLA: <refutor> what is CFC?

<Lawrence> Tks for verifying my analysis. I was thinking I missed something better.

May-27-04  refutor: <600poundgorilla> CFC = chess federation of canada
May-27-04  drukenknight: yeah you're right, Vishy has problems all the way back to move 23/24. 23...Qc2 apparently leads to equality.
