Sep-17-12  sushijunkie: This game is shocking. The engine is going to get a workout tonight!
Sep-17-12  sushijunkie: Yes. Wow. Black plays a hyper-accurate game, obviously very familar w/his opening, the themes involved, & any traps along the way.

White had a slight advantage from the start, started sliding w/a series of -.2 Pawn mistakes in the middle, and then, maybe cracking from the unfamiliarity and the perceived slippage, makes a series of massive blunders starting w/move 26. Black seizes full advantage & White resigns. It simply won't get better from there.

Black proves the toughness of the opening at the hands of a dedicated master.
