White Star: found 19) Bc4+ and 20) O-O-O what about 28) Qxe6 ...cannot find a good move for black, though 28) ...Rxc4 29) Qxc4..Rc8 leaves White only with exchange up, therefore 28) ...Rxc4 29) Kb1!..Rc7 (best of available moves)30) Qg8+ and Black is on the slippery slope

White Star: I got 21 Ra4 and 22 Rb1, but then my Rb3 is not as good since 22...Qxb3 wins the Q but leaves white's position harder to generate threats

White Star: White had so many opportunities to castle, but he was greedy and lost to good positional play. What was his rating?
   Sep-28-12 S Morris vs F Marchand, 1992 (replies)
White Star: Black is about to be mated, so he has to move fast! 30) ..R(f) x f3 does the trick, followed by 31) ..Rxf3, which ends the game; better than 31) ..qxf3 which allows some slippery moves and an uncertain outcome

White Star: 17) Qxh5 caught my eye, but what a wild ride after that!
