Apr-12-04  InspiredByMorphy: 20.Nd5 what a move only to be followed by an even stronger one... 21.Ne3! Instead of just winning a pawn by 21.Bxf6+ , Bird wins a piece instead. Where can blacks bishop go? It cant even go to h3 safely for white can then play Rg3. Great play by Bird weaving the knights around.
Apr-01-08  Knight13: 13...e5 is a mistake! A very subtle one! 7...Ne4 looks bad too. Black should've just played ...c5 and play normally and fight for the center.
Oct-08-19  SymphonicKnight: 17...Nf8? Kh8 was best here, leaving the N to protect the Bf6. But 18...Kh8?? was completely losing. 18...Bxg4 would have staved off immediate collapse.
