  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Isn't 27. Rd1 a blunder? It seems like just about any noncommital move (say, 27. Kc1) would have been better. Maybe White forgot that he'd already traded off his other rook, forcing the knight to recapture on d1.
Aug-18-04  ksadler: Can someone tell me a little more about this tournament? Especially how a 2100 rated player got to play Ponomariov? This must have just been a big open tourney...right? Nice to see Ponomariov unleash the Alekhine's Defense against someone 600 pts below him btw :)
Sep-09-04  Airlock: Whats the point of 4. a3?
Oct-07-04  refutor: i can't imagine there being any point to 4.a3. 4.a4 would make a little more sense, trying to slow down the queenside expansion ...b5 which black is threatening after ...c6
