  Mateo: Hard to understand why Troianescu resigned. It seems that he reached the time control just in time. So what?

  Mateo: Yes, this was a crazy opening with some mistakes. At some point, Troianescu was nearly winning.

Mar-29-15  A.T PhoneHome: I think Spassky can guide those Black e- and g-pawns with his King.

That's my feeling anyways (I am a patzer). :P
