Jan-25-04  SamusAran: 19... Nxh4?? I'm surprised Black fell for that
Jan-25-04  technical draw: Welcome <SamusAran> I'm always glad to see young people coming to chess. OK here's a tip: When you make reference to a move in a game, look it over twice and make sure you got it right. In this game you probably mean 19..Nxf4?. Welcome again and good luck with your chess.
Jan-25-04  rover: He didn't really have a choice, the knight was hanging too. It's difficult to suggest a good move for black towards the end. Maybe 18...Kd6 19.Rdf1 Nd7 But after 20.Rf7+ white has a much better position.
Aug-23-06  PaulKeres: 8...Qe7 is wrong (Fritz, 0.95), 8...f3 is best here (Fritz, -0.29)
Mar-19-07  MasterSavely: well this game is quite over.. sometimes black can make it up to a draw but is other rook and knight are stuck there.. maybe the folllowing game is... 20. ...Nxg2 21. (a. R x h5 getting some passing pawns)(b. Rh7+ Ke8 trapping his knight and rook)
Oct-05-07  wolfmaster: 18...Ke7 was necessary.
Jan-28-08  wolfmaster: Good utilization of the pin.
