Jan-23-19  FairyPromotion: <37...Rc8!!> Now that was some finish!
Jan-24-19  rcs784: The position after 32. Qd8 could make a great Saturday or Sunday puzzle.

  Everett: Good stuff!!!!
Feb-05-20  Pyrandus: Rapport's Game!
Feb-05-20  Parachessus: Rapport's Immortal!

I didn't like 3.Bxf6. Why bring the bishop out just to swap it for the knight? Makes no sense.

Feb-05-20  Pyrandus: Parachessus:
Trompowsky vs L Endzelins, 1936
Feb-05-20  Parachessus: <Pyrandus> Thanks, who am I to argue with Trompowsky himself?

But I will say that Stockfish slightly prefers 3. e3 (+0.1) to 3. Bxf6 (0.0).

  Breunor: Losing move is 32 Qd8?

1) -6.19 (36 ply) 32...Rc1+ 33.Kf2 Qf1+ 34.Kg3 f4+ 35.Kxf4 Rc4+ 36.Kg3 Qe1+ 37.Kh3 Rc8 38.Rxc8 Be6+ 39.g4 hxg4+ 40.Kg2 gxf3+ 41.Kxf3 Qf1+ 42.Ke4 Qf5+ 43.Kd4 Bxc8 44.Kc3 Qc5+ 45.Kd2 Qb4+ 46.Ke2 Ba6+ 47.Kf3 Qe1 48.Qe7 Bc4 49.Qc5 Be6 50.Qxa7 Bd5+ 51.e4 Qxe4+ 52.Kf2 Qf3+ 53.Ke1 Qc3+ 54.Ke2 Qc2+ 55.Ke1 Qc1+ 56.Ke2 Bc4+ 57.Kf3 Qd2 58.Kg3 Bd5 59.Qg1 Qd3+ 60.Kh4 Be6 61.a6

Qb2 is dead even:

1) =0.00 (41 ply) 32.Qb2 Rc8 33.Rxc8 Qxc8 34.Qxb3 Qc1+ 35.Kf2 Qd2+ 36.Kf1 Kg7 37.Qa3 a6 38.Qc5 Kh7 39.Qb6 Qc1+ 40.Kf2 Qd2+ 41.Kf1

May-19-20  Cactusjuice: genius.
Jan-24-21  siggemannen: Didn't get why white resigned but computer showed Bxc8 and queen can't recapture due to f6. Nice game by black
Jan-30-22  Saul Goodman: Rc8 is brilliant. How does a human being even consider such a crazy move?
