Sep-06-04  Knight13: White should have quit proticting the promoting pawn.

  Honza Cervenka: 24...Qd5 was a cold shower for poor Frank. Threat Qxg2# which cannot be covered by 25.Qg3 due to fork Ne2+ forces trade of Queens leaving white a piece down in hopeless position.

  WannaBe: Interesting, from the first few moves, I can swear this is a French opening.

25.Bc7+ would be answered by 25...Rxf7.

Apr-03-11  knt980: Phony Benoni: Thanks! I already deleted my previous post. (I guess there is a good reason why one should not play or analyze chess at 3am.) For a moment there I thought I beat Marshall in chess.

  NM JRousselle: Marshall missed the clearly winning 21 Bd5. If cd, White invades on the c file. If ed, White saves the piece with e6.

White played 21. Qb3, but he could have taken the rook.
21. Nxh8 Rxf3
22. Bxf3.

White at the moment has ♖♖♗+♙ for the queen. He might lose that ♘ on h8 but who cares!
