Sep-16-06  siilarsi: Interesting tactical game, I guess it's typically Spielmann style. But I wonder what's the point with the the double checks? But I wonder what's the point with the the double checks? They seem almost neurotic... They seem almost neurotic...

Just a guess, but maybe he was trying to reach the 40th move sooner. It depends on the time control used, of course, but weren't (aren't?) games played with some amount of time for the first 40 moves, and then some additional time added after that?

Or maybe he forgot he already made the check?

Apr-19-07  Gameoverziggy: On move 5 I like the move e5, getting space with tempo made followed up in a couple moves if not immediate by f4
Apr-19-07  Resignation Trap: <Gameoverziggy> On 5.e5, doesn't Black simply play 5...Qa5+ and 6...Qxe5 ?
Apr-30-07  another italian tony: Hey Ziggy!!! Play 5.e5 against me on Thursday LOL

May-06-07  Gameoverziggy: LOL MY BAD haha missed the queen check! Tony it'll be me vs Calgary all over again except with you
May-07-07  another italian tony: You gotta bad run with e5 in those Sicilians lately bud :) Either with White OR back hahaha
