<<Chubbster> Why is this in sports? Chess is not a sport. Neither is backgammon.>

Aug-23-10  LIFE Master AJ: 27.Rf1?? was a terrible move, 27...Qc2 won easily / out-of-hand.
Aug-23-10  LIFE Master AJ: Too many threats. Hanging Rook, ...Bc3+; winning the WQ, etc.
Jul-12-18  Howard: NIC made the amusing comment that if White had "instantly played 25.Kd2!! then Black would have good reason to request a "strip search".
