Jan-18-06  shamekovich: 14?

Botvinnik: "What sort of play is this?? This is outrageous!"

Anatoly: "Yeah, he seemed kind of weak!"


Botvinnik: "What are you doing just
castling here??" You IMMEDIATELY
play 8...Na5! when he doesn't cover
the bishop with 8 c3! It's the only
move to consider!"


Anatoly: "But all he did was trade
off his knight!"

Botvinnik: "Yes, but why did he trade it for the KNIGHT??"

May-07-08  Halofire: ouch, Nd3 was a huge fork. After that white's attempts to equalize are meaningless...
Mar-17-11  The Quinnster56: Is the end of this game a checkmate? If I am wrong please post the answer before spring break because I need the answer for a report for school. Thank You!

Mar-28-22  SonnyGIII: I don't wanna mess Karpov's black Ruy
Mar-28-22  Granny O Doul: I know it's been a while, but I'm curious if the Quinnster can tell us what mark he got on his report, and how was spring break?
