  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.
