  nasmichael: For chess kids: from move 61 forward it is like another entire game--each piece must play with purpose.
Jan-04-09  WhiteRook48: so these guys don't resign!
Jan-10-09  WhiteRook48: anyone know why White played on until checkmate?
Jan-16-09  just a kid: I like the trap that white sets with 79.Kh2.If 79...Rxg8?????? then White is stalemated.
Feb-14-09  WhiteRook48: yeah, I like the trap too, but it wasn't enough to draw
Nov-22-10  blazerdoodle: It did become obvious once he knew how to shake the opposition, but they obviously played on because they just loved to play. Not like the computer brains running around to day telling others the etiquette on every situation, lol.

I think I know.It's based on one of Emanuel Lasker 's quotes,which goes : < "I keep on fighting as long as my opponent can make a mistake." >

The same trap exists if Black plays the obvious fork 76...Rg3+. It looks like an easy win for Black after the exchange of rooks. HOWEVER, White refuses to exchange rooks and plays 77.Kh2 instead and now "the shoe is on the other foot."
