Feb-01-04  Catfriend: Why not 30..♕g5+ 31.♕:♕g5 ♗:♕d6 ?
Feb-01-04  ughaibu: Then Qf5 and take the knight?
Feb-01-04  Catfriend: Well, you're right, but it's a ♕ vs ♖ + ♗ ending, far from being dead. And everything's better than such a mate!
Nov-23-05  Chopin: What a beautiful finish!
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: great game!
Nov-27-09  WhiteRook48: actually all those extra pawns spell black's doom

  scutigera: The game is misclassified: 3..Nf6 is the Berlin Defense, C66.

  GrahamClayton: 21...♗f8 is an extraordinary move, giving White the choice of two different captures for the promotion of the g7 pawn. This is followed by White sacrificing both rooks, with the Black rook being the piece that does both captures, instead of the Queen as is the case with most double rook sacrifices.
