Jan-10-04  ChessPraxis: Black forgot that White has threats, too.
Feb-24-07  Dr.Lecter: That was a rather simple threat Black overlooked.
Apr-28-07  sezori: This is a simple oversight nothing horrible, it's just I think personally that black got a little overaggressive with the Rxc3 but I then looked a little further at the Ba3+ and mate in 3 and clearly saw it was a mate threat if he'd taken back :) 1. bxc3 Ba3+ 2.
