  kevin86: I think white fumbled away this one. Is there a better move than 40 ♘xe5? is there a worse one?!
Aug-16-04  DevastatioN: Hey, this is early in the morning, so I didn't get to analyze it well, what about Re3 instead of Nxe5? Does this give a little bit more slack to white?

  kevin86: <DesestatioN> looks good to me,white's move is a blunder!!

Where is everyone? Three responses in twelve hours!! Is everybody watching the Olympic fencing competition? lol

Aug-16-04  white pawn: I don't get the pun... Does the word "Quinn" mean "duck" in another language?
Aug-16-04  Calli: I think Black runs out of checks if
40.Rxe5! Rxf3 41.gxf3 Rxf3 42.Qh4 Rf1+ 43.Kh2 Qd2+ 44.Kg3

The caption is just a reference to a song. A pun? Maybe not, but it is Quinn-essential Beatles music. ;->
