Jul-25-05  rexeterna: Great endgame by black.
Jul-25-05  notsodeepthought: "Petri dishes..." - now there's a pun that denotes a high level of culture.
Jul-25-05  rexeterna: Seems to me like white needs just a little more spice in the opening.
Jul-25-05  halcyonteam: White lost the control of the centre, and can't even get a pension on side way counter-attacking.

Its a lost.

Jul-25-05  FinKing: petri kekki... souds like finish name....
Jul-25-05  FinKing: He is a finn!!
Jul-25-05  rya: good one not so deep
Jul-25-05  chessfreako: <notsodeepthought> lol good one
Jul-25-05  noodle soup: How about for Alan "Spice up your life" by the Spice girls =)
Jul-25-05  Marco65: I wonder whether 31.Qb2 was a better try. For instance:

a) 31...Nxa6?! 32.Rb5 and Black has 3 pawns for the piece, but a7 and c4 seems too weak to me to be enough compensation

b) 31...Nxd5 32.Qxb8 Nxc3 33.Rd8 (threatening Bh6, Bc5 and Bxa7) Qb1+ 34.Qxb1 Nxb1 35.Bh6 c3 36.Rc8 and Black will have eventually to sacrifice his c-pawn to free his pieces, therefore its material advantage is one pawn, but White has some compensation imho

  kevin86: White quickly advances his a-pawn to a6---a costly error as black uses his own a- pawn to force a win. White's knights could not stop this remote pawn.
Jul-25-05  Rocafella: No.12 LOL So Childish!

  benveniste: The play between moves 20-26 seems a little sloppy, but to my eye it looks like Spice goes astray on move 29. b5 wins the knight much more cleanly than Qa2.

<Marco65> 31. Qb2 isn't legal, but after 31. Qb3 the game looks pretty equal to me.

Jul-25-05  Vavilov: <benveniste> 31 Qb2 is legal, and if 31 Qb3, 31 ... cxb3, right? Do you mean 32 Qb3?
Jul-25-05  farrooj: Does anyone know anything about the opening? It's kind of weird..
Jul-25-05  hintza: <farrooj> 1.Nc3 is known as the Dunst opening. It sometimes called the Van Geet Opening, after Dutch IM and Correspondence GM Dirk Daniel Van Geet. I don't know much more than that.

  benveniste: <Vavilov> You're right. Sorry.
Jul-25-05  farrooj: well d5 e4 is theory? I prefer weaknesses, space advantage...or am I mistaken?
Jul-25-05  RSD770: <Rocafella> You are actually the 13th!
Jul-25-05  Rocafella: <RSD770> Whoops, yeh!
