  nasmichael: Explain the ideas white and black will try to use had play continued. For a greater challenge, do it without Fritz (or his silicon brothers), and try it in a language other than 23.(X)to (y z)... try the plan first explained in English, then use Caissic detailing.

Apr-07-07  Eatman: Nasmichael if you are still around, I am sure you understand that since black are down a whole rook and white has consolidated (black has no threats left), white knight is going back home safely.

Boleslavsky had prepared this sacrificial variation at home but had not counted on intermezzo Rb1! which makes the whole black idea unsound.
