Feb-26-08  Knight13: <34. axb3?> A blunder. Kb1's definitely better. I prefer White before 34. axb3?.
Feb-27-08  wolfmaster: I just realized that McDonnell died a little over a year after these matches were played! Wopow!
Feb-01-12  Knight13: 22. Rxb7 Rh6 23. h4 Rg6 24. Rxh7 favors White. So 22... h6 and Black loses a pawn. 22. Rxb7 shatters Black's pawn structure as well. I don't understand why White decided to play 22. Rxh7 instead.
Sep-10-12  HOTDOG: 40...Rc6! (instead of 40...b2?) and Black wins, for example 41.Rg1 Rxh7 or 41.Nf5 b2 and the Knight now can't arrive in 2
