Feb-02-05  chesscookie: what's the finish?
Feb-03-05  iron maiden: Black's already an exchange up, and it's impossible for White to protect the d-pawn and the b2-bishop. Note that the White queen also has to remain on the back rank.
Feb-18-05  Seraphina: A nice clean game.... Just an aside: Berg vs. Tal in German means mountain versus valley.
Feb-18-05  euripides: I suppose therefore that Berg said not 'I resign' but 'Ueber allen Gipfeln ist Ruh'.
Feb-20-05  Seraphina: Good one Euripides, ever the philosopher! Berg suffered a Talfahrt.
