Jun-05-08  hedgeh0g: Quite a funny game. The position at the end is great! White's pawn will promote and all of his firepower is huddled around the Black king, but Black will mate next move with two knights and a rook!

  rodchuck: According to the biography, Luke McShane was born in 1984. This makes him 8 years old at the given time of this game 1992. Some performance from an 8-year-old!
