  nasmichael: Why planning works. For white to lose the queen (twice!) in order to remove the bishop and rook and clear the lane for a 3rd queen is a great plan, and one which took 8-9 moves to execute, and more if you include taking the king to a2 (safe harbor).
Jul-14-06  Knight13: The object is to win the game, and White, of course, did beautifully.
Jul-14-06  Knight13: With all Steinitz's doubts about these moves, White still won the game... decisively.
