Jan-16-05  DanielBryant: A very 19th century game with a very 20th century opening.
Mar-13-05  Whitehat1963: What's the finish?
Mar-13-05  hintza: <Whitehat1963> 30...Nxf4 is the only move, and then 31.Rc6 is mate.
Apr-12-11  rilkefan: 12/18 moves with the queen in one stretch.

Maybe 10...Ne7 to castle kside? I guess a3/b4/b5 is a problem.

Apr-12-11  Oceanlake: I wonder...can I get away with this?

Nope, guess not.

Apr-12-11  newzild: A good, old-fashioned King-hunt.

Wonder if Black could have sacked his Queen somewhere, eg. 21...Qxb1 22. Qxb1 Bd6, with rough material equality and a bit of a fortress. Looks like White can pick up a bunch of pawns on c6, e6 and a7, though.

  kevin86: Usually castling is a method of bringing the king to safety;here it is a short cut for black to get his king "Checked-off" the board.

His play certainly wasn't a Russian invention.

Apr-12-11  KingV93: I liked 29.♗f4+ and Fritz tells me this is a bad bad move, it allows the Black ♔ to escape! ♕e4 keeps him in the line of fire and nobody in the Black army can protect e5. I'd better stay off Playchess today!
Apr-12-11  WhiteRook48: 30 Bf4+ is a nice touch
