  tpstar: Black outsmarted himself. Surely the plan was 29 ... Nd5, then 30 ... Qxd1!, then 31 ... Nxc3+ & 32 ... Nxd1 winning. The only hole in this strategy was 29 ... Nd5?? 30. Kxd5 1-0. Black had great winning chances in this endgame after 29 ... Qc5 keeping the White King out of Black's Queenside, but should keep Queens around (i.e. avoid 29 ... Qg6+ & 30 ... Qxc2) since the Pc4 was so weak.
Aug-04-04  Calli: Maybe time control was at move 30 and Samisch blundered for that reason.
Aug-05-04  Shah Mat: ^^ possibly...although I confess I'm dubious. that is a mistake I'd expect a rank beginner to make. 10 bucks says that Samisch took his hand off the knight and cried himself to sleep.
Dec-30-13  Fanacas: Well under pressure of time control anybody can make stupid mistakes even grand masters.
