Dec-18-07  diabloprancer: Beautiful mate! This was a puzzle in December's Chesslife at move 56, black to play.
May-26-08  Takya Kotov: Nice final position but basically a cheapo win.
Aug-19-12  master of defence: What´s wrong with 7...Bxc3 followed by 8...Nxe4?

  andrewjsacks: Ridiculous. Looks like a self-mate problem beginning with White's 54th move.

  andrewjsacks: <NM JRousselle> Good Q, but if in time pressure, I would say b7 would be banged out. However, now I am seeing a Black threat of Rb4 and a perpetual check possibility if the White rook leaves the first rank. I therefore am seeing for the first time the logic of h4, but I think some study and analysis of the position are required, and now it's late here...
Aug-20-12  LoveThatJoker: <andrewjsacks> Entirely off-topic, but...

Did you get to meet WC Anand?


Aug-20-12  grasser: Arthur still plays at the Clubs in Suffern, NY and Ridgewood NJ on a weekly basis.

  andrewjsacks: <LTJ> Unfortunately, no. But I do have the first-person tales and the autograph my sister got those few days before... No total loss at all. Thanks for asking.
Aug-20-12  LoveThatJoker: <andrewjsacks> Thanks for the kind reply, man!

It is unusual to see both sets of knight mutually protecting each other, and with one knight on g3 and g6.
