Oct-26-09  AnalyzeThis: Too many moves with the f8 bishop.

  thegoodanarchist: Black resigned because after ...Qf6 (only move) then the rook is skewered with Bg5
Feb-08-12  lupko: thegoodanarchist: in fact, after Qf6 g5 traps the queen
Feb-08-12  JohnBoy: <anarchist, lupko> If you see a good move, look for a better one. Thanks for the reminder.
Aug-03-12  backrank: Where is the queen trapped here? After 26 ... Qf6 27 Bg5 she can safely go to d6 (the B doesn't control that square an more after having moved to g5) ... but after 28 Qxd6 and 29 Bxd8 Black is a full rook down.

Some statistics:

Rogoff: 3421 pages of kibitzing

Karpov: 207 pages of kibitzing

May-23-13  Everett: <back rank> you are mixing up two posts. After 26..Qf6 27.g5 the Q seems trapped, which is what was suggested.

  perfidious: Dang, Karpov had just turned twenty and looks barely old enough to shave.
