Aug-18-06  PhilFeeley: Great game by Lawrence! 2 pawns down and the pin (33. Qa2) proves decisive.
Aug-18-06  boz: Typical Day victory. All over the board, now kingside, now queenside - waging small wars, winning some, losing others - gets re-organized and delivers the kill. Gutsy, original player.
Aug-18-06  avidfan: Hooray for Lawrence Day! Excellent handling of rooks to chase the queen into submission after a forced pin of B/d8 and then domination of the board on the final move 41.Qd5.

  IMlday: I was about 45 minutes up on the clock when I played 13.Ne2?!. Probably 13.Qg3 intending 14.Re1 was the improvement. The gambit 14.e5!? has as its basic concept: confusion. 33..Qb7? runs into trouble. With more time to think 33..Rb8 intending to break the pin by ..Qb3 would have been winning for Black.

I reacted on this game on the Staunton Memorial page. The move 30..Qd4 seems a clean win. After the mistake 33..Qb7 black still has some chances in my opinion, 34..Qa7 35.Qd5 Rc8 or the drawing line 37..Qd8! 38.Rcc7 Qxd3 going for a perpetual check. Good luck next rounds. Watch out for Yge Visser who has the habit to psyche out his opponents.. Sunglasses are his trademark, even in midwinter !
Aug-19-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: Great Game and he's rated 200 points higher.Games with open positions like this offer great opportunities for tactics.
