Nov-22-04  Swindler: I downloaded the free trial-client, but what now? How will I be able to watch when the lecture begins?
Aug-15-06  KingG: 20...Nb3+!!, what a resource. Apparently if White takes the knight, the game is a draw with best play. That's according to Polugaevsky's analysis though, and that was in the pre-computer era, so it could be that he was wrong.
Aug-15-06  Petrocephalon: Nice cross-pin by white, met with a beautiful counter. This would be good for patzer2's defensive combination collection.
Oct-25-15  PhilFeeley: <KingG> Actually, Polugaevsky gave the following continuation which wins for white:

22. axb3 Ra1+ 22. Kd2 Qd7+ 23. Ke3 Bc5+ 24. Kf4 g5+ 25. Kg3 Rxd1 26. Bxc6 Rxe1 27. Bxd7+ Kf8 28. Qf6 Re3+ 29. Kf2 Rxe5+ 30. Kg3 Re3+ 31. Kf2 Re4+ 32. Kg3 Bd6+ 33. Kh3 Rxh4#
