Aug-12-02  morphynoman2: 13. Bd3! Development is all. All white's moves are, as in Morphy's games, simply development, in spite of material and ephemeral success.
Aug-12-02  bishop: Out of the first 15 moves of the game Black played 11! pawn moves and 3 queen moves! no wonder he got crushed.
Apr-04-05  EmperorAtahualpa: What happens if 22...Nd7?
Apr-04-05  Cyphelium: <EmperorAtahualpa> 22.- ♘d7 23. ♖xe7+ ♖xe7 24. ♕h8+ wins; 24.- ♔f7 25. ♕xh7+ or 24.- ♘f8 25. ♗c6+ ♔d8 26. ♕xf8+ ♔c7 27. ♖d1. If white doesn't find a mate somewhere, in both cases it's an easily won endgame.

  Chessical: Balashov's <13...f5> seems too ambitious. The line for Black is extremely rare, but:

<13...Be7> 14.Nf6+ Bxf6 15.Qxf6 Rg8 16.Qxe5 Nd7 17.Qe3 (threat Be4) Nc5 may be playable for Black.

  Honza Cervenka: <Chessical> After 14.Nf6+ Bxf6 15.Qxf6 Rg8 16.Qxe5 Nd7 17.Qe3 Nc5 18.0-0-0 Nxd3+ (18...Rxg2? 19.Be2! threatening 20.Bf3) 19.Qxd3 white looks still much better.

  Chessical: <Honza Cervenka> I must agree with your conclusion. I was simply trying to find a better continuation than Balashov's <13...f5>. In the end, however, it looks like the <10..Qb7> line is effectively refuted by <11.Ne4!>.

  Penguincw: Parma's only win of the tournament, and it's against a guy who finished half a point better than him. Parma finished with 6/17.
