Feb-09-10  backrank: 20. Rd7?? was an immediately decisive blunder, overlooking the strong reply c3! White had nothing better than 20. Bf3, but Black had already the much better game, due to White's weak opening play. Exchanging the bishop by 16. Bxf6 had been a strategic mistake, being rather a futile try, since White didn't succeed in saving his e4 pawn anyway. An instructive game.

  GrahamClayton: An excellent example of where having multiple players consulting does not eliminate errors.
