Apr-15-06  SneechLatke: Ouch! Renet's 22.Rxa4?? over looks 22...Qe8! winning immediately, since it creates a decisive double attack against white's a4 rook and e3 bishop. Nunn will win at least a piece, and the game is essentially over.

It's interesting to note that there were only 2 original moves played in this game (perhaps even fewer; I have not made a thourough search of other databases), since everything through 20...bxa4 is known to theory. 21. Bxd5 doesn't seem to offer white any chance of getting an advantage in the game. Indeed, black's position appears preferable, what with ideas like (after 21...cd5 22.any) 22...Be7 (holding the a6 pawn after a possible later capture of the a4 pawn by white) followed by 23...h6 and 24...g5 creating more play on the kingside. I imagine that with best play, however, a draw would be the result.

Yes, <LPDO - LOOSE PIECES DROP OFF>.

After 22 ♖a1xa4??, White has not one but -two- pieces that are <LOOSE>: the White a4-rook is <UNDEFENDED> and the White e3-bishop has one attacker (Black e8-rook) versus one defender (White e1-rook), only piece defenders.

So White has one <LOOSE> piece on a4 (White a4-rook) and a second <LOOSE> piece on e3 (White e3-bishop) and 22 ♕h5-e8! is a <DOULBE ATTACK> which hits them both simultaneously.

Oct-20-07  ericlgame: It's amazing how moving backwards is underestimated. This game reminds me of Christiansen vs Karpov, 1993.
