Oct-20-05  spock jenkins: awesome! it went up! although i'm a beginner, i think this game is very cool. i enjoyed the tactics resulting from the uncommon opening (orangutan?). the windmill(term?) at the end is great, and even though white allows black to queen his pawn, he renders it superfluous. i don't know how far ahead volke saw this, but it's pretty sweet. did black blunder by continuing to push the pawn? i don't know, but i do know i like 46. Kd4.

i think this would make a nice game of the day too.

Oct-28-05  Dres1: is it just me or is 14.Na6 really terrible? I mean, didnt he just play Bf5? you must be consistant and play 14.Nd3 with a bind...
Oct-28-05  Dres1: on my previous message, i mean black moves, not white.. sorry
Oct-28-05  spock jenkins: Nd3 looks interesting to me! It seems like it cramps white's position and keeps the initiative.

An aside:

Judging by your quote, and your handle, you'll get this reference:

Lack of vision makes division product no ambition.

Nov-28-06  syracrophy: A try for a pun for this great game of attack: "Volkeswaggen" (instead of Volkswaggen, the type of car)

lol :-P

Nov-28-06  Total Blunder: Nice game, I really like windmills.
