Mar-04-05  soberknight: "Bell ringer": serious pun potential.
Mar-04-05  fgh: Hehe, I agree.
Mar-04-05  KGrob: This crap 3...Bb4 was original but brutal suicidal move :-)
Mar-04-05  THE pawn: 13. Nh4 and 21. Nxh6 are great moves, especially thirteen, but it still was an obvious move.
Jul-26-05  Jgamazo: 11. ... Ne7? was a blunder, losing the knight and exposing the king.

The best move was 14.f4! which prepares 19.Rf3. Most of us would have played Qh5 immediatly launched our attack, traded Queens come out with an equal rook ending. After 22.Qf5+ any king move eventually kills the queen.

Jan-11-08  Whitehat1963: Curtis Bell? Does anyone remember "The Curtis Bell Incident"?
