Sep-02-04  jeffnool: i think black should have won in this...can you help me guys? thanks
Sep-02-04  sneaky pete: <jeffnool> 35... Qh4 wins easily. 37... Bg6? is the losing move. 37... Qd4+ still wins: 38.Kf1 Bd3+ 39.cxd3 Rxf3+ etc or 38.Kh1 Bg6 39.Re4 Rxf3 etc. Analysis by John van der Wiel.

Apr-14-05  compaq7550: an improvement on blacks 6th move is.

Black then has the better pawn formation and his pieces are better developed.

Apr-14-05  compaq7550: Taking whites bishop on 34...Qxc4 is a mistake. Better is: 34...Bxf5

Black has a better ending.
a bishop against a knight.
2 pawn islands against 3
not to mention an extra rook and pawn.

  samvega: <compaq7550> after 6..e6, surely e5.

I don't think 34..Bxf5 35.Bxh6 Rf7 36.Bd3 is an improvement over the game.
