  fm avari viraf: It is very surprising to see Nielsen playing so badly where one has all the time to analyse the game. I think Manuel Aaron india won his match against Purdy & got his IM title and the first Indian to get the IM title!
Mar-27-07  Bob726: Dosn't white have 2 rooks for a queen in <Benzol> line?
Mar-27-07  Wolfgang01: What about the bishops sac 2 moves ago?

Black has his Q and B against 2 R and a P.

Apr-01-07  Bob726: Queen=9+ Bishop =3 (12)

Two rooks =2x5=10 + pawn =1 (11)

White is only one point down in material after the exchanges and i know he has other worse things about his postions: e.g. Black is more active, the Bishop pair, and an open game favors the queen, but he should have played it out a little longer.
