May-18-04  Pterodactylus: Black has a very easy win in the final position with 55... Kh6. I wonder why Yasser did not see it.
Oct-26-05  Kriegspiel: <Pterodactylus> I suppose it's possible that Seirawan was about to run out of time and neither side was sure that this would occur before the 60th move could be completed. White can't win (?) but can trade a queen for a rook and draw the game out a bit longer; Black has a sure win but has so little time on the clock that he isn't at all sure he can complete five more moves before his time runs out, at which point he will lose on time. Merely speculation on my part.


Oct-26-05  aw1988: LOL. This never ends...
Oct-26-05  Kriegspiel: <aw1988> What doesn't?


Oct-26-05  aw1988: See <GoldsbyLover>.
Oct-27-05  Kriegspiel: <aw1988> I did, and still don't get it.


Oct-27-05  aw1988: The real AJ Goldsby has a website in which he thoroughly annotates dozens of games. It's a valuable page, but people have recently been trolling about him. In his webpage, he often puts moves actually played as interesting (!?) and then, if a better alternative is availible, he'll put (maybe <move>! or !!). Also, on his own page here at chessgames, he has a number of games played at the Dos Hermanas tournament (internet tourney) in which every game he lost he suspected his opponents cheated. So the two combined have turned into a hysterical backstabbing, and at times, humor war. Sorry for the misunderstanding; I thought you knew about all this.
Nov-28-05  Averageguy: A nice attack by Michael Adams. It was a pity that he didn't finish his combination with 30.d5 which would have won quite easily.
Nov-28-05  RookFile: Yasser showed a lot of tenacity here.
