  MissScarlett: <35...Ng4> is a stone cold blunder, so Chessbase (André Schulz?) apparently tried to resolve matters with: <34.Rg7 Notation unklar h5 [Vielleich geschah 34...Ke6 35.Rg3 f5] 35.Rg3 Ng4 36.Rf3+ Rest unleserlich>, but without sight of the original scoresheet it's hard to know if that's anything more than wishful thinking.

  HeMateMe: I knew a girl in college named 'Groan Grass.' She always drank too much at keggers and 'ralphed' in the back yards at fraternity and sorority parties.

He's playing a gambit that Fischer originated. Saidy vs Fischer, 1968

Quite a nice game for a simul, actually.

Apr-01-20  Brenin: The last six moves, if correct, are a comedy of errors, with White missing 34 Rh5+, 35 g4+ (both giving drawing chances) and finally 36 Rgxg4 with a clear win. In the final position, after 36 ... Kg5 Black's central pawns will bulldoze their way through, but given what has just happened the resignation seems a little premature.

  keypusher: <Brenin> As already noted, the last part of the scoresheet is surely garbled.
