Of course not. Leon is a lion.

This time, the wolf beat the lion.

  kevin86: A few pawn moves turned out to be the key.

  Sneaky: I wonder if they gave GM Wolff a share of Berkshire Hathaway for doing this gig?

Sep-03-13  JJL: Two comments from the losing side.

1- I had seen as far as 19 ♖h3 h5 thinking that Black had stopped the immediate onslaught since 20. g4 is met by 20. ... ♖h8 or perhaps ...♕d7. Needless to say 20. ♖xh5 was quite an awakening. Kudos to Wolff since he was playing blindfold!

Fortunately 20. ... ♖h8 let's Black fight on.

2- The subsequent complications are interesting. Of course, my 29. ...♕e5 was a blunder. I should have taken the Pawn!

29. ...gxf5 30. ♖xf5 ♖xf5 31. exf5 ♘g7 is still a double-edged position with some compensation for the Pawn via the open lines to White's King.

A fun game, even if it was a loss for me.
