Nov-14-04  Calculoso: 27. ... Rxc7 28. Rd8+ and its over (for those of you who thought like I first did - Rxc7 Rxc7 then trying to advance the pawn).
Nov-14-04  poktirity: Great game, bad pun.
Nov-14-04  Knight13: Good game. Black is busted. He was winning but he lost.

  kevin86: We have two attackers and no defenders-white may have been slower,but his attack was best.
Nov-14-04  Knight13: Yep. Two attackers, no defenders.
Nov-14-04  ricardolopez: I did'nt know the line with 5...,Nd4. Could it be better the ancient line 5..., b5, in wich ,according to next W move, Nd4 could be played ?
Nov-14-04  Saruman: <ricardolopez> 5.-b5 is the Ulvestad variation which leads to complications. 5.-Na5 is another strong move, though I have never seen 5.-Nd4 it seems playable.

  fredthebear: The alternative 19...Ke8 would not have helped Black survive (although it avoids positioning behind the dangerous restrictive c6 pawn jam). White has a "single-double threat" with 20.Nd5 hitting the Black queen, followed by the fork Nxc7+, collecting the cornered rook.

There is a possible mating sequence: If 19...Ke8 20.Nd5 Qxe4?? 21.Nxc7#
