  andrewjsacks: In fact, the game reminds me of a girl I used to date: she too had a very unusual material imbalance.

  AylerKupp: <andrewjsacks> Well, in that case, you must have been very compatible :-)

  AylerKupp: But back to the game. After 11.Rg1 White has 4 pieces developed and Black has none. Not a good idea even against a young Tal.

  andrewjsacks: My old friend <AylerKupp>. I trust that you are well. Art Drucker keeps "threatening" to have another Student Club reunion.... Would love to attend and see you there. I am pretty sure Jim and others would go.

  profK: After 32 moves I can't believe that Black can loose it..he has to hang on to the kbp..The wheels fell off somewhere...
