  Morten: "Down the Hatch!". I bet he's never heard that one before.
Nov-12-07  moppa: Very clever moves in the opening, mainly based on the weakness off the f7-square!

  Honza Cervenka: For a correspondence game the ending was played a bit too long. But white's play was quite instructive. I like especially 39.Rbc2, a move that computer would hardly ever play.
Nov-12-07  cyruslaihy: I usually play 9 e6 which forces f5, when white emerges with a spacial advantage and a better development. here is one of my game starting from 9 e6 f5 10 o-o d5?? 11 Nxd5 cxd5 12 Bb5+ 1-0
Nov-12-07  sallom89: nice game.

  kevin86: Black is in zugzwang! He cannot both defend the pawns and keep the white king from d7-where he will gain the rook for his own advanced pawn.

If only black could refrain from movement,he CAN hold the position-but he CAN'T!

Nov-12-07  tatarch: The endgame is instructive-- I especially like the quiet 23.Rd2+, effectively cutting off the king from the white c pawn for the rest of the game. It looks like white has the game pretty locked up after this.
