Apr-16-06  Deus Irae: Why is this over? Did White time out?
Jun-08-08  Xeroxx: White is winning.

Nxd5 is coming.

  FSR: <Deus Irae> Yes. Why not 20.Nxd5! cxd5 21.Bxd5 Kd7 (what else?) 22.Rad1! intending to take a rook with discovered check?

  FSR: I should have said "Yes" to Xeroxx, not Deus Irae.
Aug-30-14  morfishine: Incredible oversight by White not seeing 20.Nxd5 cxd5 21.Bxd5 Kd7 followed by 22.Rad1!

All I can see for Black is 22...Nd6 giving back the piece and eliminating 'check'; but this doesn't help much after 23.Bxa8 Rxa8 24.exd6 cxd6 (or 24...Bxb2 25.dxc7+ Kxc7 26.Re7+ Kc6 27.Bxa7)

25.Rxd6+ and White wins

  perfidious: On the uschess website, the result is given as above, with Bisguier scoring 6.5/9 at Framingham, this apparently being his only defeat.
