attempted to receive higher
titles (i.e. IM, GM) is beyond me.

  Honza Cervenka: Very sharp game but I think that Sagalchik's 12...bxc6 was a weak move. Why not 12...Bxb2+ 13.Kxb2 fxg5 instead of taking a pinned Knight which cannot escape?

  Honza Cervenka: 20.Qxd7+ was possible too.

  kevin86: Maybe Emory didn't progress too far because he was bored-HA HA.

Black's pawn had a plan to reach e1 to get his rook back--but was unable to ford the well guarded river known as e2.

  WannaBe: I do not think 20. Qxd7+ is possible.
Unless I misread a line or a post...
Apr-15-05  jahhaj: 20 ♕xd7+ ♖xd7 21 ♖xd7 threatens 22 ♗xf7# and 22 ♖d8+ ♔e7 23 ♖1d7#. I think Black must give up his queen to avoid mate.

  WannaBe: Oops, I should have looked again.
I take back my last post. Sorry.
Mar-09-06  Poisonpawns: One of Tates greatest efforts: Morphy like!
Apr-23-08  mate2900s: amazing effort by tate in my opinion one of the greatest tacticians alive wow! and watching his analysis sessions are priceless
Dec-05-11  Mudphudder: What an excellent series of exchanges! I would say this is one of Tate's less aggressive games even.
