  jaime gallegos: 25. Rxa7 ! great ! 6 vs 4 pawns is too much for blacks

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Well, I sure wouldn't play 7...Nxd4.
Aug-31-04  maildog: Yes An Englishman, i agree with you. 7...Nxd4 does seem to be a blunder. I would have played a6.
Aug-31-04  marco78: 9...Ne7 looks bad, but 9...Be7 is refuted by 10.Qg4! attacking g7 (black's B is pinned)
Aug-31-04  Calchexas: Minix game is good, but Hydra's is better!
Aug-31-04  williscreek: After 23...Qc1+ 24. Re1+ wins quickly.
Aug-31-04  PawnBlock: I liked 25. fxe3, I expected to see the R drop to retake (keeping pawns together. But the strength of that R on the 7th worth much more than worry over an iso.

  kevin86: White was the aggressor from the beginning-he gained a pawn,traded off--and came face to face with a combination that netted him another pawn and an exchange of rooks. Good strategy and tactics by white.
Aug-31-04  ungeneral: Did Black miss an easy mate here? Look at
23 .. Qc1+ 24 Rd1 Qxd1 25 Re1 Qxe1#
Aug-31-04  siggemannen: <ungeneral>, no because Re1 is with check and black loses the queen
Aug-31-04  Calculoso: Rxa7 is a great move. I bet it was a total shock to black... Great move which pretty much guarantees the victory.
Aug-31-04  themindset: yes, it took me a moment to understand 23...Qa3, as it does initially look suicidal... but is actually a dirty trick. very nice.
