  ToTheDeath: Yeesh. Sometimes Waitzkin's play is just completely one dimensional.
Sep-06-06  RookFile: Well, that slow system involving Bc4 and d3, etc. was popular. I think Wolff's going for d5 was very sharp. They used to play this system all the time in Harvard Square, Wolff saw this many a time there and in games in his career.
Sep-06-06  BobbyBishop: 26. Be3? - very careless. Seems like a blitz game blunder. Losing a pawn and simultaniously allowing black to snatch the initiative. The beginning of the end for white.

  ToTheDeath: RookFile- I wasn't referring to the opening so much as Waitkin's dogged pursuit of a kingside attack at all costs. Giving away the queenside pawns is just ridiculous.

24. Bb3 Qxf3 25. Nxf3 and White has a a pleasant endgame ahead of him.
