  offramp: He may have had a hallucination where a captured piece remains on the board. So that after bxa5 the a-pawn is 'pinned' by the imaginary black queen and ...Nxb4+ is possible.

  Sneaky: I don't know what you guys are talking about, 25...Nxd3 is the best move in the position. The real lemon is 24...Nc5?

  cu8sfan: Minasian gave up too early. Sooner or later Radjabov would have offered a draw. (-:

  offramp: Yaaaars! Black's play is pretty inexplicable from alpha to omega.
Feb-21-05  Assassinater: If black really that badly off here? I mean, if he takes the rook, he's down a Queen for a Rook and a Knight, the approximate value of a pawn lost. But it's just a pawn, right? And after Nxh8 Rxh8, black just doubles up on the c file.

Of course, there might be some other reason for why black resigned. What's the winning try for white here?

Feb-21-05  Assassinater: Actually, never mind. I was thinking taht it was black to move there at the end. :P
