Dec-31-05  ThunderStorm: Queen skewer!
Dec-31-05  syracrophy: -<13...Ng4 was a mistake> It does nothing and allows a quick white developing and attack. Black should have continued with this opening's theory by playing <13...Qc7>

-After the move <15.Nd5!?>, the knight cannot be taken because of the sequence: 15...exd5 16.exd5+ Kf8 17.d6! Bxd6 18.Bf4 Bxf3 19.Qxf3 Bxf4 20.Rxd7 Ra7 21.Qxg4 with a large advantage for White.

-<19.Rh3?!> The rook its not good on this square. <Correct was 19.Rdd1>

-After 34...Kc8 35.Rc6+ Bxc6 36.Be6+ Kb8 37.Bxg8 Rxg8 38.Qxh7 with an easy win for white

  zydeco: Interesting that Petrosian passed up the chance to win the queen with 24.Rd8+ Rxd8 25.Rxd8+ Qxd8 26.Bxd8 Bxf2+ 27.Kh1 Kxd8.

  fispok: I don't think that Rh3 was necessarily a mistake. It prevented the capture of one of his rooks, and only slightly delayed his overall goal.
