  Nightsurfer: Oops! That sacrifice does work, the early Kamikaze-attack by Knight on f7, with 11.Nxf7?!?! ... that deserves SIX STARS for COURAGE!
Aug-16-11  Mattulowitz: It was a very risky attempt to embarass my opponent.After 14...g6 I felt that only a kind of kamikaze-attack could save my little life.After 50 minutes I got nervous by calculating the following queen's sac.My desperation changed to overpowering enthusiasm.By moving the bishop to h6 my hand trembled and I had to support it with the other.It came to my mind that I was going to create the best game of my life! My opponent helped a lot to confirm this illusion. Looking back I must say it was a comedy of errors.

Aug-16-11  Mattulowitz: Dear Mr.Xeroxx,
My English is not sufficient to understand what your statement could mean. Please help me. Do you think that
My game vs Zschischang was a product of preparation at home? or the whole game was not a real game ?

Dear Mattulowitz, that's the way chess should be! Chess is not math, chess is a battle, and the winner is that Commander-in-chief who has got bullocks! Errors do not matter - it is the result that matters!

Oops, my English is too bad, thank you so much for making me aware of that, dear <Abdel Irada>! Herewith the correct version of that very posting that I have posted on August 16th, 2011:

<"... Chess is no math, chess is a battle, and the winner is that Commander-in-chief who HAS GOT THE BALLS! ...">

A rather late clarification - but better late than never! ;-)

Sep-09-13  Abdel Irada: "Bollocks" would be fine, and I assume it's what you meant. :-)
