  PawnSac: < Chesstorian72: 41.b7??? >

yea it was a time pressure blunder. Kaspy had a won game here

Apr-29-16  MCDreamz: Old ghost Kasper lost a time pressure game called blitz.

  Sally Simpson: Time pressure in Blitz Chess. Never heard that one before. (I'm thinking there may be a clue in the word 'Blitz.')

However for the record. Gary played 41.b7 when he had 33 seconds on the clock and Wes had 40 seconds.
