My favorite player is Joshua Waitzkin. I loved Searching for Bobby Fischer. Josh sure has heart. I'm just a chess novice but am in love with the game.

glennfunk: Looking for alternative moves to Bezold's fateful 42 Kg4: If 42 Nxf3...Qh6+! 43 Kg4 Rc4+ 44 Rxc4 Rxc4# If 42 Qxf3...Rxe5+! wins the queen by either: 43 Rxe5 (Bxe5) Qxf3+ OR 43 Kg4 Rg5+! 44 Kh3 Qxf3 with mate to follow. However you look at it, Bezold was losing his queen. Hope

glennfunk: Josh and his superior endgame...Josh knows he has a won endgame and in moves 22-30 attempts to trade off to make his 1pt lead more significant.

glennfunk: Why not 27 ...Qxc2? Does white have any threats that the queen need tend to on d8?

glennfunk: What a feat to come back from that sweet knight storm by white. Nice job Josh!

glennfunk: Ouch Nf5+ pins wins the queen. Should black have guarded 31 ...Bd6+ with 32 Bf4 or was it all over long before this point?

glennfunk: I think he was afraid of losing his grip on the a pawn after 57 Kb5 (...Nd6+ 58 Kb6 ...) where the king is now well placed to promote the pawn IMHO. But you're right, c5+ would be a little less boring.
