Jul-30-10  hellopolgar: daym, a 2417 player gets mated...and it's a back rank mate too!
Jul-30-10  zanshin: White can still interpose with the Queen - so not technically a mate yet - but still must have been pretty embarrassing.
Jul-30-10  Bobsterman3000: 26...Qf1+ LOL
Jul-30-10  Shams: What is black's best on 20.Qxe4<?>
Jul-30-10  randyjohnson: shams maybe Ne7!? is interesting and black have a lot of play for the pawn= with the activity of the piece for the material.

Howewer i think is better qxe4 than Ng4

Jul-30-10  ozmikey: Black probably has some advantage after 20...Ne7 - he'll win back the pawn pretty much straight away (an immediate 20...Qxb3 looks a bit risky because of 21. Ng5 and 22. Qh4) and he'll be left with a superb bishop versus a pathetic one. But it's certainly better for White than what happened in the game!
Jul-30-10  twinlark: Adams isn't even raising a sweat.

Jul-31-10  vileblunder: I'll feel better now the next time I do this in blitz. Probably today.
Aug-01-10  Ulhumbrus: If White is going to play 9 b3 instead of 9 c3, an alternative to 10 c3 is 10 Bb2.
Aug-02-10  Garech: I agree, this is incredible! Probably a mistake by Slavin in earlier calculations, and no coincidence that he resigned on the 26th move, so it's no miniature - of course he would have seen the mate coming long before (or at least the loss of a piece) but playing to the point he did guarantees the game won't end up in a GM miniatures book, or something like that.
Aug-02-10  Ulhumbrus: After the move 15 a3 Slavin offers a pawn on b3 for several moves, a pawn which Adams declines, and eventually White's centre falls. An alternative to 15 a3 is 15 Rad1 making way for Bb1 in reply to ...Nb4
