Nov-24-06  Everett: How 'bout move 35. Black to play and win? Slick two mover at the end.

If white tries 36.Bf2 then black has 36..Nd2+ 37.Ke2 Nxe4+.

  Mateo: After 34.Qxf7, White is quickly lost. An improvement was the funny 34.Bf2!, with somes hopes, as 34...Rxf2 35.Qc8+ is a draw. So Black has to find something else.
Apr-03-07  Everett: <Mateo> Nice find! I'm assuming you mean, after 34.Bf2! Rxf2 35.Qf5+ first...
Jan-26-11  diagonal: Note: White is Fridrik Olafsson, and not Helgi Olafsson who played then with black against Geller, in that 10th round (URS - ISL), La Valletta, Malta 1980, 24th Chess Olympiad.
