Jun-29-10  kramputz: Transposed into the Sicilian Dragon. What a crazy way to get there.
Jun-29-10  DarthStapler: What's the ending?
Jun-29-10  number 23 NBer: I don't see anywhere to put the queen. For example:

22 ♕a1 ♘a2 and I can't see a defence to ...♖c1+

and 22 ♕e1 ♘f2+ 23 ♕xf2 ♖c1+ 24 ♗f1 ♗d3 and Black can simplify to a winning ♗ vs ♘ or ♘ vs ♘ ending.
