  patzer2: Basman initiates a pretty deflection mate with 20...Rxg3+!. The finale is 22. Qe2 (22. Be2 Qxg3+ 23. Kf1 Qf2#) 22...Qxg3+ 23. Qf2 Qxf2#.
Dec-16-04  themindset: nice game, almost makes me wanna try 1...h6 2...g5

the gambit ( g4/Qxg4) actually seems sound. (i consider the mora gambit sound, btw).

Mar-20-05  refutor: 1.d4 anti-tromp ;)

Although, if 22. Be2, then 22. ...Qf2# is quicker ;)
