  profK: The white bishop sits like a shag on a rock at b5 for 10 moves. Could white have put up a better defence, but a great down to the wire attack by black.

26. ♗e2 ♘d5 27. ♕xe4 ♘xc3

26. b4 ♖xb5 27. ♘xb5 ♕xb5 28. ♖g1 ♘f3 29. ♖xg8+ ♔xg8 30. ♕c5 ♕e2

Nov-01-15  ndg2: What's up with those silly opening names? Someone watched too much Jurassic Park? Why "Western"? Is there an eastern Rhamporhynchus?
