Dec-06-10  Cuew: I wonder what happened here. Black does have an advatage, but I don't think white's position is resignable.

Dec-09-10  thickhead: I have not yet gone through the game completely but after 41 moves Soumya has created "deepam" on king's head. what a spectcular position ? All her pieces except pawns are in 3x6 rectangle. or except two pieces in 1x6 rectangle. This is only in light vein and not a comment on her playing ability. In fact I am proud of all grand masters of my country.
Dec-31-10  ReikiMaster: 56.Rd4 looks good for white. I don't see a win for either side.
