Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-11-05  patzer2: McNabb's 20. e4? is a mistake, allowing 20...Qxa5! winning a pawn with a decisive positional advantage. Relatively better was 20. Nh4 , though Black still has a small but lasting advantage.
Feb-15-05  KibitzerX: This was such a cool move. I am glad to have seen this game.
Feb-15-05  patzer2: 31...Bf5! is indeed a cool clearance move, preparing a decisive deflection and giving the King an escape square.

After 31...Bf5, play could continue 32.gxf5 Bxg3 33.Rd8+ Kh7 34.Kg1 Bxh2+ 35.Kh1 Rxf1#

Mar-22-05  KibitzerX: <patzer2> It is indeed very hard to judge the value of a position, but you seem to have this down to a science; well done.
