May-10-05  zsystriker: What gives? Loss on time?

  TheAlchemist: Probably, look, it was a 5min blitz
Jul-03-07  Toledo Paul: Must be a 5 min game. My son and I discovered several moves that Kaspy seemed to miss and we received full credit for them. For ex. 23...Rc1+! 24. Qxc1 Qxg2 looks like a killer. There were a few others but I can't remember them offhand.
Aug-06-07  shreesh: No , toledo --- he simply plays Kxc1 . Takes with king instead of queen . and even if he did take with queen , R-e1 seals the game
Aug-06-07  mrbiggs: <shreesh>, if 23 ...Rc1+ the king is on e1 and can't take the rook.

After 24. Qxc1 Qxg2 white can't stop black from taking the rook back.

Jul-03-09  Knight13: Not to mention Ivanchuk is famous for going into time troubles. But his king certainly enjoyed his walk at the park before getting assassinated by Time.

  Breunor: Weird game for guess the move, black is pretty much busted. Final position has white 1st +2.62 According to Stockfish.
