Jan-20-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 11...Be6?? Paralyzing e-pawn for the whole mid-game wasn't too smart by black + White played flawless ending.
Jan-22-06  jackmandoo: Just because the bishop move looks funny, it doesent mean that it's not playable. It is actually quite sound and I have beaten 2 GM's with this move.
Jan-23-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Jack McAdoo> I'm sure you did.
Feb-10-06  blingice: He did, I was there.
Feb-13-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Blind Ice> I'm sure you were, too.
Sep-27-06  Maatalkko: <Autoreparaturwerkbau> 11...Be6 is extremely common in Sicillian positions where Black fianchettos, like the Dragon. Black doesn't want to move his e-pawn anyway, because that would weaken the d-pawn, which sits on a half-open file.
Sep-27-06  Maatalkko: Besides, Bogoljubow was a World Championship challenger, and someone with a 1700-1800 on Yahoo should think twice before giving him a blunder mark.
Nov-30-07  Arbitrarily0: Can someone explain to me why Rabar didn't play 42. Nxf7 fork? I'm sure there is an obvious reason - but I'm an "extreme" beginner.
Nov-30-07  turkish tickler: all white did was move out of check so that nf7 would come in next move to win.

notice that kf3 was better than an immediate nf7 since black would play bc5+ uncovering an attack on the undefended white rook on d1 and WINNING after a rook trade and the black knight would come into e3 forking the king and undefended white bishop on c4, while also removing the guard of the knight hanging around on f7.

This means black would be up a piece. therefore white gets out of the way of the check and forks on f7 next move.

Dec-01-07  Arbitrarily0: Thanks
May-26-09  Sebas88: interesting
May-26-09  WhiteRook48: and about 42...Bc7? White can't fork on f7 but wins nevertheless
