Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-10-04  Resignation Trap: Dely has no chance after his decisive error on move six!
Mar-10-04  shr0pshire: the pawn sack on move 5 gives white the tempo to control the game and gain a decisive control, until move 12 where white tries to get over ambitious.

This blunder by white allows black to get back in the game with material equality, black is in a little worse of a position, because his king can't castle.

Instead of trying to protect the black king, black keeps trying to trade off queens, however this makes white's position that much better.

this game goes back and forth, and cannot be chalked up to one decisive error especially on the sixth move.
