Nov-26-08  Ideefixe: I cannot but wonder what exactly happened on the 22nd white move?! Did Kotronias accidentaly pushed the f pawn a square too many?! That's the only thought I could make at first. Then it occured to me that under time pressure things might not be so obvious and clear. OK 22.f3 is looking very natural and correct but 22.f4 isn't that bad, is it?! Kotronias is thinking. He will play 22...Qd2 threatening mate on g2 but I can play 23.Ne4 Unfortunately after 23.Ne4, 23...Qe3+ is very emphatic and ends the game at once. The question's still hanging in the air... tactical or technical blunder?! Quite improbable to be answered though.
Nov-18-10  uscfratingmybyear: 24. Nf2 and I don't don't see the immediate win.
