May-08-05  Milo: lol, you should send in more games...
May-11-05  offramp: Very tense game. I couldn't tell which way it was going to go until the Nb5+ dénouement.

Strange how the two attacks sort of mimic each other.

23...Nxh3 does Not look like a good move; the knight looks powerful on f4.

Great stuff!

  Honza Cervenka: Black's quick demise in this game started only after 34...Bxc1?! After moves like 34...Rhf7, 34...Rg7 or 34....Rfh8 black is still in the game.
