Mar-12-05  iron maiden: <tpstar> You actually drew a GM as Black under normal tournament conditions? Impressive.

  Benzol: <tpstar> Very nice. Well done on a well played game. BTW shouldn't you be apstar and are you related to the golfer?

  keypusher: <tpstar> wow!!
Mar-12-05  aw1988: Ah, so tpstar is Tony Palmer. Congratulations on drawing a strong GM.
Mar-12-05  WMD: Which strong GM did he draw?
Mar-12-05  Giearth: *LOL*
Apr-19-05  yoozum: So, can we have a bio then? ;-)
Apr-19-05  Milo: I can imagine your singing may have unnerved Mr. Lein somewhat. ;)

  offramp: The opening reminds me of that well-known Petrosian-Fischer game from 1971.

I bet 31.Bxg5 came as a bit of a shock, but you weathered the storm and came out with half a laurel.

  WannaBe: <tpstar> Who offered the draw in the game? And with the 2 pawn adv. I am going to guess white did?
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <WannaBe> I offered a draw at Move 50, but he wanted to play on. Technically the final position is a three-time repetition, and we shook hands.

As of 42 ... Rb7 I thought Black had realistic winning chances, or at least I had the draw in hand. I didn't expect 43. f4 liquidating Pawns, then White created an effective light square blockade.

Oct-05-07  sanyas: <tpstar> your comments should go into the pgn.
Oct-05-07  sanyas: In fact, have you thought about publishing an annotated game collection?
Oct-05-07  sanyas: MTV Chess hosted by tpstar - now there's a thought.
Jan-15-09  WhiteRook48: or has the game already gotten into the database?
Jan-19-09  WhiteRook48: wait, it has. Ignorance makes me forget.
White should be mad he didn't win this game, but had to draw it.
Mar-01-09  WhiteRook48: do not be Lein-ing on a Palmer tree (no offense)
