Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <aw1988> which move? There are a lot of rook movements out there. (Or I am so buzzed I can't figure out the key move.)

Jun-07-05  aw1988: It even analyzed it out to mate! Splendid. *end sarcasm*

Nice job, mate. :/

Sep-12-07  smarterthanbobby: I just don't get why white just quit?
can anyone inform me why? down a pawn
white just gives up?
Sep-12-07  pawnofdoom: <smarterthanbobby> Probably becaause he was scared of either 32. ... Qxc3 making black 2 pawns up in a won endgame, or maybe even 32. ... Bxg2+ 33. Kxg2 f6!, which will possibly win a pawn, after 34. ... fxg5 35. hxg5 Rxg5+
Sep-12-07  smarterthanbobby: why in the world does black not take
the bisop on move 19? what is he blind?
Sep-12-07  smarterthanbobby: thanks pawn but probably dosen't
give clarity... anyone understand
Dec-12-07  Yurys student: <smarterthanbobby> I am not sure why Rhg8 is better, but when I put the position into Fritz 6 (don't have anything better, Fritz 6 came with chessbase lite for free) it said that white was at -2 and after 19...Qxe2, only a -1.
Dec-13-07  Gilmoy: <smarterthanbobby: ... why white just quit?> White's Q and R are both attacked, hence 32.Qa6 Qf2 and Black mates. White has no perpetual, e.g. 33.Rxc7+ Kxc7 34.Qa7+ Bb7, or 33.Qa5+ Ke6. So White must give up his Q for the B.
Jul-21-17  Chesstorian72: <NotSmarterthanbobby><why in the world does black not take the bisop on move 19? what is he blind?> Because f5 is annoying and why not gain a tempo first then take the bishop, now the rook is on the g file and when the queen moves away QxB is better cuz if now f5 there is Nxh4.
