Jun-16-06  borisbadenoff: Hmm my engine says 64. Bb6 is a blunder. The evaluation drops from -2 to -4. And Rc7 was needed.
Jun-16-06  blingice: <boris> Which engine? Would you mind testing this endgame on 40/120 time control (starting at the final position)?
Jun-16-06  borisbadenoff: Well I used Rybka for this but as we know it's endgame evaluation is not always so good.

But I'm willing to do a endgame testing.

As I'm not so sure about this time control notions does 40/120 mean 40 moves in 120 minutes and over or 40 moves in 120 minutes repeating.

Jun-16-06  mack: Lovely game lads - it's been added to my collection. I've got to say I'm kinda tempted to get involved with some of this consultation stuff myself, it looks fun. If anyone fancies it, join me on my brand spanking new chessforum...
Jun-16-06  sitzkrieg: You'r the guy with the stonecold hard right?
Believe me, you don't want to do this stuff, intern-team fights, team fights, unjustified win-claims, it never stops!
Jun-16-06  sitzkrieg: <blingice> If we had played like that at least some of my team would have died of old age; it doubles the game length!. Besides, I dont know if the computer understands the plan to keep the rook on the 7th row, in your line its played to c8 quite early.
Jun-28-06  dakgootje: Aye lets make it game of the day
Aug-16-06  RonB52734: Can anyone tell me whether there is any truth to the rumor that member (and black consultation team member) NakoSonorense dropped out of this game at precisely the same time that Bobby Fischer was taken into custody in Japan? :)
Sep-06-06  sitzkrieg: Lol:). I can confirm this rumor to be true. And if I remembered correctly, the excuse of Nako and the sorority girls was never really believable anyway.
Oct-11-06  positionalgenius: A great game by both sides.
Nov-13-06  Microbe: This was an excellent game to watch. Great notes too <EmperorAtahualpa>.
May-06-07  Octavia: why did you call it a = when white wanted to play on?
Dec-24-08  WhiteRook48: what a consultation!!
Jan-06-09  WhiteRook48: probably a draw because black can catch that a7 pawn easily.
Jan-12-09  WhiteRook48: why did black offer up the queen?
Jan-25-09  WhiteRook48: 4 c3?! is weird. Why try out a gambit?
Jan-29-09  WhiteRook48: typical pattern for the Bxf7+ sac
Apr-29-09  just a kid: We should have another one of these again soon...
Oct-16-09  JamesMazur2: <blingice>
Not 64. ...Bb6??
Try 64. ...Rc7!
Oct-16-09  Kinghunt: The annotation on move 28 claims that 28...Nc6 was necessary, but that simply loses to 29. Qxg7 with the idea of 30. Nd5! While 28...Be6 was also weak, that by no means excuses errors in the annotations.
Oct-31-09  JamesMazur2: <Kinghunt>
I agree.
Oct-31-09  JamesMazur2: I am not a hundred percent convinced yet that this game is a draw. About 90, though. Rybka came up with one line where the a-pawn and a kingside pawn were traded for black's two kingside pawns. White could win the endgame. However, I accidentally lost the line...So I'm not sure yet...
Dec-25-09  Eduardo Leon: I want to play a consultation game too! (Unfortunately, my work schedule prevents me from dedicating a decent amount of time to analyzing lines.)
Dec-25-09  returnoftheking: <kinghunt> what do you suggest we should have played instead of 28..Be6? <eduardo> that shouldn't keep you! Just let the rest of the guys do all the work-or at least when you're too busy:-)
