Dec-26-06  RonB52734: <> Please note: the Ulvestad v. Steiner, US Open 1946 game that I submitted a short time ago is indeed a different game from this one. The game on this page was played in the preliminary round. The game I submitted was played in the final round.
Jan-28-07  Resignation Trap: <RonB52734> The other Ulvestad-Steiner game was a Dutch Defense, and Ulvestad had a brilliant victory within his grasp, but blundered and ended up losing.
Jan-30-07  RonB52734: <Resignation Trap> Yes, several months ago now I plugged that game into Hiarcs just to have it spit out a PGN, which I uploaded to <>. As you know, the tournament book says something like "Ulvestad sacrificed his Queen for a strong attack, but when the attack fizzled..." Well, at the point where the "attack fizzled," Hiarcs lit up with a forced mating line for White, which he missed. If that game ever makes it out of the <> PGN upload queue, I have some analysis ready to go.
Apr-07-15  Peachcroft: What about 20. . . . NxN, the idea being 21. . . Nd2ch.
