Sep-21-08  I Offer You A Resign: Letting Black take on a5 in the endgame was a nice move. Many players I know would have tried to protect it. Maybe it's a small thing, but it was a good game.
Sep-21-08  Smothered Mate: This should be listed as a Pirc, 150 attack.
Jul-18-10  zdiddy: nimzo notes in his book that the losing move was on move 9, giving up defense of the d6 square. it was in the occupation of this square by the rook on move 28 that the game was won
