Jun-23-06  LIFE Master AJ: Don't you just love Q+P endgames??? (NOT!!)
Jun-25-06  Marmot PFL: 90...Qe2? (Qg4+)
Jun-30-06  LIFE Master AJ: Don't you hate it when GM's play such short draws? ;)
Jun-30-06  suenteus po 147: <Marmot PFL> If black plays 90...Qg4+ how does he continue if white responds with 91.Kh6?
Jul-01-06  blingice: Oh <LMAJ>, stop it, you're making me giggle...

What if 75..Qxg2?

Jul-01-06  suenteus po 147: <blingice> 75...Qxg2 is a nice idea, but unfortunately the black king is in check and must defend first.
Jul-04-06  blingice: Hah, that's usually the problem with my lines...stupid checks...
