  fredthebear: White advances up the board in dominant fashion like it's a sprint to the finish line. Then, the last move of the game is a retreat. The White knight could have captured the pawn w/a threat to capture the Black queen next. But instead, White safeguards his knight with a double attack upon two loose Black units. White's rook will get the pawn anyway after the Black bishop retreats. Black sees he's down two pawns and the exchange and must retreat the bishop, so Black decides it's time to resign.

The last move of the game -- the White knight retreat instead of the greedy pawn capture -- is absolutely crucial to victory, and one that could have been easily overlooked. It's not necessary nor healthy to eat everything in sight.

When you see a good move -- wait! Put it in your shopping cart and look for a better one... your opponent's next move. He might just one-up you if you snatch that free pawn. Any free capture just might be poisoned.

  fredthebear: FTB likes this game. White is eating everything in sight and then 27.Nf3, he promptly stops to take a dump for good reason. It's a different kind of winning move.

Chess is like driving an automobile -- You always have to look out for the other guy! (And sometimes you need a pit stop.)
