Aug-21-04  me to play: 14.Ra2 seems wrong to me...perhaps 14.Qd2 right away is better.
Aug-21-04  xiaolin: i totally understand what your saying but the back rank needs to be cleared ofr attack, and as you see the B queen comes forward and they go back to defend, these guys will be thinking alot of moves ahead /♘\

  kevin86: It was a good game-if not a good-goode game.

43 ♗g2 ♗xg2+ 44 ♔g1 ♗xd5+ winning white's newly crowned queen.

Aug-21-04  VStrider: [I think] 22.f4 was a critical mistake. The move takes away the only available square for the e2 knight. (Qd1-Nc1 is unthinkable cause it disconnects the rooks and white pieces would be badly placed.) 22.Nf4 was better. Maybe white thought its ok to play f4 cause he intended Kh2-Ng1-Nf3. But he overlooked black's threats of doubling on the e file and Qf6 targeting f4 with the h6 bishop. white had no time for that manoeuver.

me to play: he probably intended to open up the a file(a5 b5 cxb5 axb5) and doubling there.

Kevin86: 44...Be4+ 45.Kf1 Bd3#

  kevin86: <VStrider> Thanks,I thought there was a mate there somewhere. I just didn't look for it-beside,I might have missed the black queen's dominion of the e-file.
Aug-21-04  Calchexas: I have a friend whose name is Johnny B. Goode. Seriously. (OK, he goes by John. Understandably.)

  ToTheDeath: 18.Nf4? allowing the exchange of the all important dark square bishop is a positional blunder. Petrosian played nicely with the 2 bishops to build decisive pressure. 30...Bxc3! killing the beautiful dark bishop but allowing the queenside knight to come in with devastating effect was a nice way to trade advantages and "cash in".
