Jul-15-05  bentengutama: i luv to play grob after 9.Rd1. strong position .
Feb-18-06  blingice: This game follows Grob vs W Sommerhalder, 1965 up until Black's 11th move. I think that this is the best outplaying I've ever seen. Grob is running circles around this guy, and he can't defend against ANYTHING Grob plays. I'd say this game is similar to Morphy and Greco dominations.
Jun-04-07  Emma: How can someone play so badly in a correspondence game?
Jan-08-09  WhiteRook48: I guess Black forgot his g-pawn was pinned.
