Feb-24-09  Autoreparaturwerkbau: "Natural" 27...Rxe6? turns out to be fatal.
Aug-03-09  Xeroxx: Well you can't blaine him.
Aug-03-09  InspiredByMorphy: I'm not sure 27. ...Rxe6 was fatal as 29. ...Bf6 could have been played. Of course after 30.Qxc5 Qxc5 31.Rxc5 Bxb2 black is still a pawn down. The move that messed black up in this game was the premature 14. ...O-O instead of 14. ...Qd8 .

29...Bf6 30. b4 seems to win a second pawn. What am I missing?
Aug-03-09  InspiredByMorphy: <beatgiant> Not missing anything. I missed 30.b4
Aug-03-09  WhiteRook48: 31...Qxe6??? well he was lost anyway
Aug-03-09  AnalyzeThis: Black might have done a little better with 12....Bxd3 instead of Nxd3. The a6 bishop is a worthless piece to black.
