  technical draw: Probably because 21.Bxb6
Feb-03-04  TrueFiendish: Definitely. If 20...Nxd3 21.Bxb6 Qb8?? (to try Bxd5 and Qxb6 when white takes the bishop) 22.Ne7# Oops.
Feb-18-04  Helloween: The young star seems to have trouble against the English, scoring 0.5/5 against it in this database. It's probably preferable to stay away from sharper lines against this kid, since he is so up to date on current opening theory and his tactical eye is so strong.
