Nov-12-05  lentil: the badger knight at b6 strikes again! 16 Bxg4 Nc4 17 Q(e2,e1,f2,d3) Nxd3 recovers the piece, staying a pawn to the good, owing to 18. Qxd3?? Bh6
Nov-12-05  lentil: 27... Ne5!! sets a diabolical trap based on the R/f1 being unprotected and a fork/pin motif if W takes the p/c5. Which he does.

Where does he come up with these ideas?!

Nov-12-05  CapablancaFan: 28. Qxc5? Clearly a blunder. Qd5 or worse Qe2 was called for, but I can almost understand why Larry didn't make those moves because they aren't pretty and would have still left his position slightly inferior (that g7 bishop looks menacing). Larry was already on the brink of destruction and I would'nt be surprised if he was in time trouble.
Feb-21-12  edyedzer: Suttles special subtleties !!
Sep-21-19  thomascrown: Game score differs from San Antonio tournament book which has descriptive notation: 28...NQ6+ 29.PxN QR6 (Qh3)30.RB2(Rf2) RB1(Rc8). I believe the translation of descriptive to algebraic was the problem. Also tournament book has Suttles notes to this game. The move order makes a major difference to the game!
Dec-21-21  radman3: I agree with thomascrown. I first saw this game in the San Antonio tournament games bulletin and always thought the moves and their order were as given in that bulletin, which was written in descriptive notation. If Suttles had played 28...Qa6?, Evans could have played 29. Rd1! (not 29. Rf2??) and Suttles would have lost a pawn for nothing (29...Nd3+?? 30...Rxd3!). On the other hand, 28...Nd3+! 29. cxd3 Qh3! 30. Rf2 Rc8 is a beautiful combination, against which Evans (once he took the poisoned pawn on c5) had no good defense.
Apr-22-22  thomascrown: Thanks radman3! Unfortunately Chess on the Edge Vol. 1 also has same game score as chessgames and Seirawan has correct score in the annotations which he states 28...Nd3+! as the most accurate! My source is San Antonio tournament book, which I have. Someone should strongly suggest a change to the game score on this site
