Jun-12-09  ROADDOG: Mated big brother. Probably felt pretty good. Eventhough the data base shows even games score, I wonder how many times over the years he was smashed by Robert?

It's insane...Going out like Abel and Cain...."

Sep-17-13  jerseybob: For the first 45 moves this is as good a sample of chess art as you could ask for, and although black seems to have the edge, whether it wins is not clear to me. But surrendering g3 with 46.Bh3 is a gross miscalculation - maybe he missed the brilliant 47..Nf1+ - and white is quickly down for the count.
