Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-26-12  iamdeafzed: Game Sum: Nunn secured an advantage very quickly out of the opening and in response, white decided to press for an attack. Unfortunately, his attack wasn't sound to begin with and in the end position, white's attacking prospects are totally gone. Meanwhile, black is attacking white's queen, but is also threatening things like Nxa2+ and a vicious counterattack to follow. These two facts mean that white is in trouble, even more so than I initially imagined according to my version of Rybka (yes, I'm a patzer who needs it).

Case in point: one of Rybka's top move suggestions after black's Rg8 is Qxg8+.
