Mar-19-07  Whitehat1963: Amazing that this game hasn't been commented about very widely! Definitely a Game of the Day candidate! If not, then at least have fun looking through the maze that begins with 30...Qxb3. There's a great puzzle in there somewhere.

  vonKrolock: <32...♗c7> Allowing the sequence leading to a won endgame, but - there was an alternative?! - 32...♔b5 33.♕d6 ♕d3 34.♕c5 ♔a4 35.♕c6 etc seems to be even worse for Black
May-07-07  Whitehat1963: I can't imagine that Luther played 52...Ba3 without seeing the result. Is it just a collassal blunder, or perhaps a "gift"?
May-13-08  Whitehat1963: Wednesday/Thursday puzzle after 32...Bc7.
