Mar-24-07  OneArmedScissor: Can someone explain <55. ...Bf3+>?
Mar-24-07  sanyas: It is inexplicable.
Mar-27-07  s4life: it has to be an error <65... Bd3> looks like the right move
Mar-28-07  Inf: wow i didnt know Granda was playing... man too bad i missed it!! still a 2nd place not bad! great game by Granda.
Jul-31-07  alexandrovm: the pair of bishops where stronger than the pair of knights...and black dominated this game...
Nov-24-07  Inf: You are right. 15.g4? i think from move 20 white had absolutely no ideas.
Mar-06-08  ConLaMismaMano: If 25.cxb4 axb4 followed by 26.Qxb4 Rfb8 the Queen has to retreat back to d2 or e1, not to a3(?)protecting the b pawn since it will become inactive for quite a while with no place to go and white's position is only going to get worse and worse.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Yes, the ♗-pair is very strong when the position is quite stable, and the ♘s are tied to defence. A ♘ can't move and still keep up thr defence of a point.
