  kevin86: I would have gone with the simple:"Gone Ephishin'"

What a deal! White gains a rook and two pieces for his queen. If only Henry VIII could have made deals like that.

Nov-24-04  dac1990: I don't know where you guys are getting the "ph" sound from. E-P-I-S-H-I-N has no f- or ph- sound in it.
Nov-24-04  ice lemon tea: khalifman did a good exchange of queen for a rook, a knight and a bishop...
Nov-24-04  Whitehat1963: Great exchange of material, but I don't see the finish. Help.

  Chessical: Epishin has run out of moves, and his K-side shelter for his K is precarious.

<40.Bd3> Qc6 41.R1a6 (rushing achieves nothing: 41.Bxf6 gxf6 42.Rh7+ Kg8 43.Raa7 =)

<41...Qc1+> 42.Kg2 Qc3 43.Bg6 f5 (43...e5? 44.Rxf6 gxf6 45.Bxf6+) 44.Rxe6 winning.
