Nov-30-04  fasting: Strange to eat all that wood - and a really nice attack is done by young Aagaard. I used to play in the same club as mr. Strange
Dec-16-04  fasting: But certaintly a nice one by Jacob Aagaard.

  wwall: Instead of 21.Kc1?, perhaps better is 21.Nd5 Be3 22.Qf8+ Rd8 23.Qb4 Nf2+ 24.Ke1 Bxd2+ 25.Qxd2 Qxe4+ 26.Kxf2 Rxd5 27.Qc3

If 25.Ka2 Bc4+ 26.Kb1 Ne1 27.Qd1 Qe3 wins for Black

Jun-01-05  weirdoid: White seemed to be a bit greedy in the opening, but I don't see any point in 11. Bxc6 - only forced black Q to a nice square. Admittedly the lack of development was already threatening by then, but - from my patzer easychair, Bc4 instead followed by Qe2 seemed to offer some play.
Mar-19-13  Abdel Irada: Strange mates are here!

Mar-19-13  YetAnotherAmateur: I agree that 11. Bxc6 seems a bit weak. I'd also have to seriously question 16. Ne5, which looks to me like an inferior choice compared with, say, Qf4.

  kevin86: At one time,white attacks both rooks and queen,but as you were-his OWN queen was under fire at the time.

  PawnSac: A Strange loss indeed.
poorly handled opening for white
Sep-26-16  sfm: One more joke on that name - and I will strangulate the unfortunate!
Sep-26-16  sfm: White has almost made it, but the quiet 17.-,Rd7! is a brilliant decider. Why spend a move on moving a rook that, if captured, can be recaptured with the other rook? Because it both threatens
- the white night on f7
- the winning move 18.-,Ng4, where the rook on d7 prevents White from capturing the knight with check. Cool!
