Apr-17-05  Eatman: Nice mini by young Chucky. At the end no white can't hold f4 and e2 at the same time after Qxb2+
Apr-26-05  takeithome: <Eatman> White's suspicious handling of a French advance has much to do with his demise. Who can put his King on f2 on move ten with a straight face nowadays?
Apr-26-05  DP12: As my recollection goes it has been played many times before!
May-21-05  Gavnyce: Brillant!
May-21-05  Shams: is this the win?
21.Qxf3 Raf8
22.Ne2 Bxf4
23.Nxf4 Qxd4
24.Rhf1 e5
25.Qd3 Rxf4

etc.

May-26-05  ughaibu: Shams: for example 21.Qf3 Qb2 22.Ne2 Qe2 23.Qe2 Bf4
Aug-11-06  fevered cheek: it looks like horvath should have taken the pawn on f4 with his bishop instead of the g pawn. play might have continued 13...fxe5 14.Nxe5 Ndxe5 15.dxe5 with an equal position
