Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-23-04  InspiredByMorphy: Maybe 9. ...O-O would have been better. 10. ...c6 looks playable too.
Sep-23-04  mjk: Could it be that Black's plan to plant the ♘ at e4 early was wrong. He never breaks the pin and loses the piece. 10...c6 doesn't look like it solves Black's problem as 11.cxd5 cxd5 12.♘c3 and the ♙d5 can only be defended by removing one of the ♘e4's supports.
Oct-03-07  Resignation Trap: I know that Marco <claimed> to not be feeling well on the eve of this game, and that Marshall introduced him to the curative powers of whiskey.

I don't have Marshall's account of this game with me at this time, but I remember that he said something like: "the next day, he beat me like a child. Then I felt sick, since I usually beat Marco".

  whiteshark: The key to clearing a hangover is either finger down the throat, gut wrenching vomit through the mouth and nose (and possibly backdoor failure in the process) to clear the toxins... or... continue drinking non-stop til the liver, et al, go.
