Aug-24-03  patzer2: Luke McShane finishes off his opponent in this well played Kings Indian with the pretty tactical shot 36...Bxf3!! 37. gxf3 Nh3!! Initially he gives up his queen with a psuedo sacrifice, but quickly wins back his opponents queen plus the exchange with this neat discovered attack.
Jan-20-05  ZenJewel: Why didn't McShane play ....Bxf3 a move earlier?
Aug-22-05  OneArmedScissor: 42. ...Rxc5 43. bxc5 d3 44. Bc3 Be7 45. Bb4 Bxc5 and white can resign.
May-20-07  rook17: would 36.Nxg5 have helped white at all?

<Why didn't McShane play ....Bxf3 a move earlier?> I was wondering the same thing.does Bg4 accomplish anything? maybe it's just to give him more time since it was a tournament...can anyone clarify?

Mar-31-09  nuwanda: what i really like about this game, is the journey of the black b8-knight

he moves out to a6 on move 7, he waits there until move 22 to go to c7, stays there up to move 31 to go to e6 and immediately to g5 and on moves 37,38 he puts the final blow on h3 and g1, just the opposite fields of his start...

great picture, a real hero...
