Feb-10-05  CeeFoR: Loved 20. Nc7
Feb-10-05  MUG: Ah, the old revealed pin plus double attack trick. I try to get at least one of these into all my games! Seriously though, do you think Rogers spotted this when he played 16. Bg5? If so, then that's quite impressive!!
Feb-10-05  weirdoid: Why 27 ... Qxb2? Seems like there are any number of better moves (Qe5/d6/f6, Ne5, etc). Seemed to me Black had an ok position until then.
Feb-10-05  aw1988: <weirdoid> What about the threat of Ne6?
Feb-10-05  weirdoid: <aw1988> If for instance, 27 ... Qe5, on 28. Ne6, Black could simply exchange queens. Or 27... Qd6 (or Ne5) 28. Ne6 Rxf1+. Or 27 .. Qf6 and Ne6 Qxf1+ with wholesale simplification. I don't see how Black could lose such a position.
Feb-10-05  aw1988: Indeed.
Feb-10-05  MUG: <weirdoid> You're absolutely right, pawn grabing with 27 ... Qxb7 is a rotten move (greed has been to ruin of many a good position!). 27 ... Qe5 looks good to me (but I don't trust 27 ... Ne5, it just feels unco-ordinated!)
Dec-22-07  deadlysin: 27...Qxb2??, and after 29.Nxg6+ black should of resigned
