Oct-27-04  Knight13: 20. Kd8? castle queen side is better.

42... Nxf8 43. Qxb8+ Ke7 44. Qd6+ Kf7 45. b8=Q 1-0. Good game.

Oct-27-04  Saruman: <Knight13>Im afraid you missed the pretty tactic 20.-0-0-0?? 21.Nxb6+! axb6 22.Bxd4 winning a piece. White had many such "sneaky" resources in this game.
Oct-27-04  aw1988: Someone once made the comment of "boy, that was sneaky" to which member Sneaky responded "i'm flattered, but I am rarely this devious". :)
Oct-27-04  Knight13: <Saruman> Yeah. That is a pretty tactical and sneaky, I agree.
Oct-27-04  Saruman: <aw1988>ROFL, I had planned to put a parenthesis in my previous post saying;"dont you dare joke about this Sneaky"
Sep-23-11  Kasparovsky5: Prettier and quicker is: 41.Qe6+,Kd8. 42.Rf7,Qxd3.43.Qe7+,Kc7.44.Qxc5+,Kd8. 45.Qg5+,Kc7.46.Qa5 mate
Nov-04-11  Ulhumbrus: 9...h6? weakens the square g6 and allows White to fork the B on f5 and the square g6 by 11 Nh4! and on 11...Be6 12 Ng6 deprives Black's King of the ability to castle into safety on the King side.
