  OhioChessFan: The song is wrong in a star leading the shepherds to Jesus, if anyone cares.

Jan-12-14  Rory O Rion: Nowell had more than a possible chance, 56, Rxd5(instead of Qxc5), and capturing in turn Queen exchange with Ktxd4: then should Black capture Bishop 57, Bxb5, rook Rxb5+. 58. King is forced to Ka6(certainly not Ka7); now the Knight simply falls back 58. . . Ne2(white square) blocking the pawn advance, and the situation looks radically changed with Black facing a few formidable challenges: pawn&Knight at center; and the White pawn advances, King And Queen side?? ?
