  Honza Cervenka: Bh3 is an unavoidable threat. It is quite interesting that Bishop, which have not made any move in the course of all game, decides its result in the end.
Jan-15-04  Catfriend: I thought about something like 24.♗:b5 a:♗b5 25.a6
Feb-10-04  Hinchliffe: Catfriend: I like where you're coming from but what happens if Ktb8 x a7?
Feb-10-04  Hinchliffe: ooops sorry mean takes a6.
Feb-12-04  Hinchliffe: Actually it doesn't matter a fig the game is over. Just of case of which wine to serve with the mate. Anyway thanks Catfriend for getting me thinking in the first place.
Dec-20-04  GreenDayGuy: What a shame. It actually looked like black could defend, but still that was an amazing quiet move.
Jul-29-05  aw1988: <Honza Cervenka> See KID games. :)

I don't see what was wrong with playing N.c4 here, because it's better than Na8? for sure. If he was afraid of b3 being played at some point, attacking that knight then he still had Na3 with b4 providing protection. He's one of the guys from the American junior team that played Kasparov in the 80's, so he wasn't exactly a pushover although he played that way in this game.
