No way to stop 33 Bf5 winning the queen or 33 Bxd7 winning the knight

May-01-06  s4life: How about 32... h4?
May-01-06  stanleys: If 32...h4 then 33.Bf5 Qh5 34.g4 traps the queen
May-01-06  fgh: I would like to see black's face after 32. Bh3 :-)
Jul-22-06  notyetagm: Wow, another Black queen trapped because she has <NO RETREAT>.

I have seen several trapped queens this week, all of them because they have <NO RETREAT> even though they were on their own side of the board!

Jul-22-06  notyetagm: After 31 ♗c1, Alekseev must have thought "Rut-roh, my queen is gonna be trapped".
