May-21-04  Elrathia Kingi: Move 16 attains an odd position, where practically all of the pieces are lined up on the Queenside, with no open or half open files, and no passed pieces or pawns. The epitome of a closed game.

  kevin86: A remarkable position-black is trapped in a managerie of pins,forks,and passed pawn. Here are his choices-all bad 42...fxe6 43 ♗xe6+ winning the rook
42...♖xd4 43 exf7+ ♔h7 44 ♗b1+ followed by ♖xf8
otherwise 43 exf7+ followed by ♖xf8 or if the rook captures: ♗xf7
May-21-04  Shadout Mapes: How about 42...Rxd4 43.e7?
Oct-09-07  sanyas: <Elrathia Kingi> I don't see what's so special about the position.
Dec-10-18  Saniyat24: Rooks and bishops are mortal enemies...!
