Jan-17-09  A.G. Argent: Well, <Ychromosome>, if you're finding it interesting because of the resignation of Gupta following his last move, I think maybe he chucked it in because it was going to be impossible to stop the advance of Black's b-pawn even if he gained her h8 Rook in trying to Queen his own pawn. I maybe off but if it went 38...Kf7 39.Rd6 Rc8 40.Rd8 Rxc7 41.Bxc7 Bxd8 42.Bxd8(or Nxd8), either one, 42...b2 and she is re-equipped with Queen. There's probably an easier, quicker line but that's my story.
Jan-18-09  AliMatok: Gupta vs Harika, an Indian wins.

Girls were sometimes dangerous.
