  DiceToThat: Boden must not care much for playing defense; he brought the Lady out early and built up pressure on Black's K-side the whole game. I particularly like 18. e6, threatening to 'checkmate' the Black queen. The ending is nice, too.
Mar-29-07  chessamateur: <DicetoThat> Well, it certainly helps when your opponent sits back and does basically nothing to challenge the center.
Apr-03-08  Knight13: Too much in the dirt for modern day masters to study. Black just walked into it. The funnier thing is that Black barely did anything to stop White from coming at him.

  fredthebear: The sacrifice 20.Ng6+! is another "Taimanov Knight Check" used to open the h-file. It is Deadly Checkmate 9 on pages 30-31 of "How to Beat Your (Anyone) at Chess" by Murray Chandler.

This handy hardback should be used like math flash cards (skim speed read) as a training tool to remind your brain of 50 common patterns in chess. The entire left-hand side of the book numbers 1-50 can be reviewed in 5 minutes. You do like to checkmate your opponent, eh?
