Sep-05-04  tacticsjokerxxx: A great feat by Jun Xu at destroying the Alapin, wouldn't you say?
Dec-07-05  Mating Net: 15.Qxd5? was not good at all. Why trade Queens when Black gets to recapture with a Knight on d5 and gets an invite to entrench a Rook on c2? White must have thought that his extra pawn would be enough to win the endgame.

One Rook on the 7th is strong, two is almost always decisive, even though in this game, there was still plenty of work for Black to do when White resigned.

  plang: Although the end of the game is marred by a number of errors by both players (time trouble) as well as a premature resignation this is still a good example of the power of a rook on the seventh rank.
