twitter: the pun reminded me of this: http://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/26... worth a few minutes if you're in the mood for a laugh, you'll get why i though of it when you watch ^^

twitter: i, for one, think this is an amazing combination. i find the resulting mate after 21. Bxc4 (or anywhere else) to be extremely pleasing. i personally didn't get this one. i went for ..Qxc3 but got hung up after the king went behind the bishop. very, very pretty!
