  An Englishman: Good Evening:

Roy Rogers is riding tonight,
Returning to our silver screens.
Comic book characters never grow old,
Evergreen heroes whose stories were told...

  al wazir: 45...Qg6. Now what?

46. Qd5 (46. Qe5+ Kg8) 46...Ra4 (46...Rxc3 48. Qe5+) 47. Qxc5 Ra2 48. Qg5 Rc2 49. Rc7. White has a two-♙ advantage, but with opposite-colored ♗s it looks like a long slog.

Jan-18-16  LivBlockade: <al wazir> After 45...Qg6; 46. Qe5+ Kg8:

47. Rd7 looks strong. Play might continue 47...Kh7; 48. Rd8 Bg8; 49. Rd6 Qf7; 50. Bg5 and Black can't hold on much longer.

  morfishine: Quite an exciting game, much to Rogers credit

Zero for the title, as usual, no surprise there


Jan-19-16  Moszkowski012273: Black HAD to play 35...Qe3+

  kevin86: White is up one pawn, but the attack is crushing...
Jan-19-16  Moszkowski012273: Also 45...Ra4 is better than 45...Qg6 but it's still easily winnable for White.
