May-02-12  iking: bravo!!! Michal is the man of the night, whoa!!!
May-02-12  Gilmoy: <14..Nc5> is startling: Black puts his strength where White isn't. White feels too safe? Probes without urgency, gets no breakthrough.

<20..Be5 21..Rc8> Black quietly looms, sniping between the hat and the hair. Scalp tingle: Black's K looks safer!!

<28..Qxd5> bravely hangs Her Majesty for 7 tempi, and White never has a useful discovery. Thematic of Black's play: more aggressive forward positioning, imposing cramp/constraint on White's pieces. Black's Q sortie was a risk, inviting minors to kick her around. But properly done, it cuts both ways: she lures and goads those minors like a matadora.
