Feb-26-08  Knight13: Tinsley fought long and hard, until subtleties finally got to him.
Jul-23-09  Knight13: 14...f5 sucks. Weakens e5 and e6. ...Nf6 should be OK.

  Jonathan Sarfati: In the tournament book, where every game was analysed by another player in the tournament, Tinsley frequently tells how he dislikes White's Bg5. And this was after Pillsbury had shown its great power by beating some of the best players in the world. Here, Tinsley had his chance, but played the atrocious 14... f5.

He lasted so long only because Pillsbury, unusual for him, relaxed his grip with 20.Nc4. This allowed Tinsley to capture the central Ps at the cost of an exchange, which should have been enough for equality.

Mar-05-23  tbontb: An important game for the winner. Tinsley missed the best defence (35....Qc6) after which Pillsbury easily broke through
