Mar-03-04  thefrogspitit: nice mating net :-) sac sac sac sac--i like it when the greedy players get all the peices they want except they give up their king :-)
Mar-04-04  TrueFiendish: Black is a disgrace to the board...I can play better than that.
Nov-11-04  aw1988: Turzo is a well respected IM...
Nov-12-04  jcmoral: Wild game! Anyone know the time controls?
Nov-12-04  azaris: It says "55 0 u" in the header. Unless I'm mistaken, that means 55 minutes/game.
Nov-13-04  jcmoral: 55 minutes?!? Looking at the game I thought it was blitz or something...
Jun-17-05  Gazman5: The hallowe'en attack. Devastating at many levels, especially in blitz. There's a good aricle about it here: http://www.xs4all.nl/%7Etimkr/tour/...
According to the database after 4.Nxe5 white wins an astonishing 70% of games.
Jul-05-05  DanielBryant: 9...Qf5 seems superior. Opening the centre for white makes little sense.
Jan-15-06  Archerforthelord: 9...Qf5 10. Bb5+
Oct-31-08  GreenArrow: This game is excellent and the comment by <TrueFiendish> is completely unfair. Black probably avoided 9...Qf5 in view of 10.Bb5+. 7...d6 and the next few moves are unco-ordinated but after the natural 12...h6? ... White wins! 13.Rad1! and there is no way to stop Rd8+ whilst still defending f7. A quick tactical flourish and the game is over.

<GreenArrow>,
What about 12...♗e6 trying to exchange the white-squared bishops?

That 55 must be seconds, ie a bullet game.

  takchess: 13 Rad1 is a beautiful move that passively sacs a bishop and starts the fireworks. Don't think I would of played that one as white. (need to remember this one)
