May-13-06  MagnaPsygnosis: Typical, Woman doesnt play nearly as aggressive as men... And Magnus took advantage of it.

he idea behind the sicilian, is to neutralize the center....Pahtz didnt seize the idea at all with moves like 5. ...d6.

I would prefer Elizabeth to destroy that kid

Jul-24-06  Bufon: This woman played a horrible end game.
Aug-26-06  MagnaPsygnosis: <Bufon>
..i agree
Aug-26-06  kinghunt72: Black most likely lost with 11... Qg6. Paehtz didn't play like anyone with her rating.

You are right in the sense that it was not the best move... bt that move prevents white's white bishop to temporarily develop, while at the same time allows a option of f5 hopefully developing her bishop.
