Mar-28-04  crippledpawn: Sweet and sneaky!!
Most moves seemed natural in appearence!!
Feb-24-06  dakgootje: Wow thats a nice finish =)

not too smart of black to castle that way ;-)

Nov-04-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 18.? Who would have thought, we actually have mate-in-2!
Oct-26-10  sevenseaman: One subtle point in the final consummation of the mate is that White Q on h6 has no role that is not being performed by the White pawn on f6. Any other dumb piece on h6 would have held down h7, and its not really a Q sacrifice.

Such games leave you feeling empty even if you are on the winning side. Why so? TBH I've no plausible answer. So a little waffle; okay, you get home early, but did you get some chess?
