  Mateo: Hard to understand why Troianescu resigned. It seems that he reached the time control just in time. So what?
Sep-04-09  ounos: Oh.... what a crazy opening was THAT?

  Mateo: Yes, this was a crazy opening with some mistakes. At some point, Troianescu was nearly winning.

Black to play and throw the game into crazy mode!

Mar-29-15  A.T PhoneHome: I think Spassky can guide those Black e- and g-pawns with his King.

On the queenside, hmm... Maybe they can be liquidated, too bad I can't give any good continuations!

That's my feeling anyways (I am a patzer). :P
