  An Englishman: Good Evening: White's 25th a very witty move, although I'd like to grind it through a silicon monster to make sure it's sound in all variations. Black's 28th is not a blunder in a bad position, but a sacrifice to try and scrounge together some counterplay. He gets a fair amount of play, but not quite enough, although Black might have missed something in the complications.
Dec-26-08  sallom89: I guess the silicon master think its the best move..
