  WannaBe: Nice Bishop (Bxd3) move by black to get clear the f3 square. Perhaps white was expecting Nxd3 after the exchange?
Oct-08-05  kozo: mabye he was short on time. this is a rapid game, after all.
Oct-08-05  moiz: that Nf3 move could be seen a mile away, all it needed was a deflection, how could he have missed that threat? Sometimes Chess is a pocketful of Blunders!
Oct-08-05  CeeFoR: Like kozo said, this was a rapid game after all..
Oct-08-05  sfm: I think white is lost ever since 17.Rxf7 anyway.
Oct-08-05  rya: yea what's up with that rogue suicidal Rook??
Oct-08-05  Knight13: Nice.... Screwing up is what you do. Sacrifice is made to be unsuccessful, huh. It was a miscalculation. Nobody sacs a rook for no reason.
Oct-08-05  AlexanderMorphy: yeah good queen sacrifice by white...LOL
Oct-08-05  khense: Instead of 24 Rf2, white should have played 24 resigns
Oct-08-05  EmperorAtahualpa: To see 25...Bxd3 in a rapid game is pretty impressive!

I believe all the games in the Rapid Dutch open were 1 minute on the clock for each player.

The pun is ok today.

  kevin86: "Good Luck Charm"-a good Elvis song!

White's d-pawn was en prise for a long time (since move 12);isn't it ironic that its belated capture would set up the winning move?
