  Benzol: This looks like one of those Labourdonnais-McDonnell encounters.
Nov-02-03  ughaibu: I'd be interested in the Druken-view of this one sometime.
Jan-09-04  ughaibu: While we're hot, how about this as possibly better than FS6?
Feb-13-04  ughaibu: Drukenknight: If you're looking at Latvians, I still haven't heard your views on this one.
Feb-13-04  drukenknight: 23 Qxa7 is all I can see off hand.
Feb-13-04  ughaibu: What about 23....Bb6 winning the queen?
Feb-13-04  drukenknight: isnt it 24 Qxb7+
Feb-13-04  ughaibu: No, white's in check.
Jul-01-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 18...Nxc4! is a fine example of dealing with pseudo-pin.
Jul-11-07  sanyas: 20.b3 would have kept White's winning advantage, but unfortunately 20.♖fe1? allowed a draw. But instead of taking it, Black played 24...e3 (24...♗d8 repeats the position). White could have won with 26.♖e2 ♘xb2 27.♖xe3 ♗xe3 28.♕xe3 d1=♕+ 29.♖xd1 ♘xd1 30.♕d4, or even 28.♖eb1 e2 29.♕f3. But he blew it, and Black got a nice finish. Then Black screwed that up as well - 32...d1=♕ is more natural and mates more quickly.
