  Honza Cervenka: 26...cxb2+? was a sad mistake losing the game. 26...Qa1+ 27.Bb1 cxb2+ 28.Kc2 (28.Kd2 Ne4+ 29.Kc2 Qa4+ ) 28...Be4+ 29.Kd2 Qxb1 would have won easily.
May-07-04  Whitehat1963: <Honza Cervenka>, Marshall's game with Marco is probably my favorite of all time because of the sustained excitement and variety of tactics involved. Because I respect your opinion, what games do you think match that one for sustained excitement and surprise?
