  Bobsterman3000: Wow, no kibitzing for this one.

How about 34...Nxe4!! leading to a rook + heavy pawn majority versus 2 minor piesces. Fritz 8 likes 34...Qh4 much better, but that doesn't win with as much style :-)

Apr-19-08  positionalgenius: <Bobsterman>Yes its a brilliant game, one of the hidden gems from the 2007 blitz cup.
Mar-19-12  voyager39: Opening of the Day 19 Mar 12 - Instructive game with black here. Where did white go wrong?
Mar-19-12  haydn20: The retreat 13. Be3 giving up the pin on the f6N seems too passive. White is worried about square f2, but he should be more worried about forestalling b5 with 13. a4 IMO.
Mar-19-12  haydn20: It looks like White may be able to defend after 30. bxa5 or 31. bxa5--at least it can't be worse than the tactical debacle of the game.
