Jan-04-08  blacksburg: ouch. 23...Qf2 probably broke Poliak's heart. before that, he's down a pawn, but he thinks he has an nice attack going, and then it backfires on him. i would have been heartbroken, anyway.

"Evidently White had not foreseen the Black Queen's interesting manoeuvre. He was reckoning only on 21 ...,Qxd4+."
