  Xeroxx: Beware the Hippo!
Jun-11-08  mezzieh: Very passive setup by White. At first, when I looked on move 15. I thought White is intending to play 16. f4. But trying !6. Nc2 and following it with pawn exchange on d5 is illogical. In the end it turns out that Black Rook has only to stand on the open file and put pressure to bring the victory.
