  NM JRousselle: This is yet another great example of 2 Bishops being superior to 2 knights.
Oct-14-18  Huddsblue: Good play by Denker. Horowitz got his pieces all tangled up, a bit like me in fact :)

Oct-14-18  Peabody: At 27, what would be bad for white if Nxf4? If black accepts the exchange, it looks like white gains a pawn gets rid of the bad N and breaks whites 2 B advantage.
Oct-14-18  DanielBryant: 27. Nxf4 Rxb2 28.Rab1 Reb8 looks dominating for Black.
Oct-14-18  Peabody: Why not Rc2?
