  An Englishman: Good Evening: An exciting game in our Opening of the Day for 3 April 2016, which constitutes rather a surprise for me; during my playing days 4...Nd7 was considered drawish and boring. Back then, we didn't have the high risk line with 11...Kf8.

In the position with R & 3P vs. B & N, 28.Bg5? only invited Black to move his Rook out of the way so that Queen and light-squared Bishop could rule the board.

  yiotta: I got the impression from this game, especially the final moves, that Atousa was angry, which is not like her.

  yiotta: Actually, Tarjan was probably very short of time.
