May-30-05  patdapatzer: Ke8, Rxc6

  al wazir: 16...O-O-O.
May-30-05  de schaar: what about 22... Qxg6 23 Bxg6 Kxg6?
May-30-05  Granite: 16. ... O-O-O is met by 17. dxc6 Rxd1 18. cxb7+ Kb8 and finally recapturing the rook. This gives white two rooks and a bishop for a queen and a rook, but the pawn on the 7th rank is going to win at least the exchange or make another queen. Craft seemed to think the position wasn't a clear win for white yet, but the attack still seems very strong.
May-30-05  mack: A nice if obvious combination. There's absolutely no excuse for anyone to ever play 3.e3 though, it's a terrible move.

  OhioChessFan: <patdapatzer> 25. Bxc6+ seems a little more accurate. Either way is winning.
May-30-05  farrooj: Hey guys!
nice combo. Qxd5, very good continuation, trapping the king in the center. At the end of the game, white brings his other rook in and wins.
May-30-05  xqdashi: <mack>, 3. e3 is a valid opening move leading to the Colle opening.
May-30-05  hintza: But there are much better moves.
May-30-05  dac1990: Such as the very debatable 3.c4!? a relatively rare opening (in the shadow of the Sicillian). There are many advocates of this move, although most prefer to steer the entire game away from this type of position. :)

  TheAlchemist: 15.Nxe6 is an opening Trapl.
May-30-05  coucoucou: I agree with mack: no excuse for 1.d4, 2.Nf3,3.e3 players! :=)
May-30-05  HelloGoodBye: someone was like i beat joshua waitzkan how can u beat him? does he ACTUALLY play here?

  kevin86: It is bad policy to open up the center files with the king still there-despite a possible material advantage.That advantage can blow away like dust in the wind.(yes,I like KANSAS)

May-30-05  Andrew Chapman: <what about 22... Qxg6 23 Bxg6 Kxg6?> then Qd6 or Qe6+. If king back to second rank then white can pick up the bishop. If to fourth rank then I reckon he would get mated.
Jun-01-05  PaulLovric: the first cricket chirps
Jun-05-05  patzer2: White gets a dangerous attacking initiative with the demolition of pawn structure sacrifice 15. Nxe6! The computers initially give it as an even position, but White's initiative appears to steadily increase to a winning advantage.

For example, if Black plays 16... O-O-O!?, White secures a decisive advantage following 17. dxc6 Rxd1 18. cxb7+ Kb8 19. Raxd1 Rf8 20. Rfe1 a6 21. Rc1 Qd7 22. Rc2 Ka7 23. h3 Rb8 24. Bf3 g5 25. Rc6 Qd4 26. b4 Qb2 27. Rc8 b5 28. g3 Rxb7 29. Rxe6 Qb3 30. Re3 Qb1+ 31. Kg2 Qf5 32. Ree8 h5 33. Be4 Qf6 34. Bd5 h4 35. Ra8+ Kb6 36. Re6+ .

Just a drop of water in an endless sea.

All we are is dust in the wind.

I rather liked Kansas myself.

Jun-09-05  aw1988: THE QUESTION IS: What, in anyone's opinion, is their favorite Kansas song? I personally am rather fond of both Carry on my Wayward Son and Song For America.
