  Domdaniel: < i have only one thing to say, OWNED! > I see. Ten years ago, this was a slang way of saying "White won easily".

I'm glad argot has moved on. It was an ugly expression, redolent of capitalism red in tooth and claw.

And people who have only one thing to say? Often, sadly, they mean it.

Apr-10-15  Mating Net: 13.b5 looks like a strong push. Besides sending the Black Knight to the back rank, it fixes the a & c pawns. The Q side breakthrough with 27.Rxc5 was only a matter of time.
