May-23-07  zanshin: Was 25 Bc1 a blunder? I think Larsen should have played Ba1 and given his rook an escape square. But good win for Torre!
May-24-07  Cyphelium: <zanshin> After 25. ♗c1 black wins anyway. He can chose between 25.- ♗b4 26. ♖c1 ♗xd2 27. ♖d1 ♗c3+ 28. ♔f3 ♗xa1 29. ♖xa1 ♖xa1 c3 with an easily won endgame or the immdiate 25.- ♗b4 26. ♖c1 c3.
Jun-01-07  zanshin: <Cyphelium> Thanks! I played your analysis through and think you're right.
