Aug-25-05  notsodeepthought: An equally bad - or perhaps even worse - pun might have been "Tea Pour-s it on". As for the game, 29 R:f6 was a nice shot.

  WannaBe: 35. ... Qg5 is a questionable move.

Well - if he doesn't block the White's knight from going to e7, it's mate in 2.

  al wazir: Why did white move the queen three times (from d3 to c3 to b2 to b3)in the opening? She apparently decided against playing 29. Qxc7, winning a piece, because black gets a perpetual. Why didn't black play play 30... Qe8, forcing white to play Rf1 to avoid the perpetual or loss of material? Or 30...Rg8? Then if 31. Qxc7 or Ne7, bxf6 threatens mate; if 31. Rc8, 31...Ne8.
Aug-25-05  kab: After 32...Kh7 by intuition i would have played 33. Ne7. I think this move leads to mate very quickly!
Aug-25-05  sfm: <kab: After 32...Kh7 by intuition i would have played 33. Ne7> So would I (hopefully)! To stop mate on g8 black must give the queen for the knight or accept 32.-,h5 33.Qg8+,Kh6 34.Nf5+. Probably they were in time pressure - and the game continuitation wins fast as well.
Aug-25-05  kab: <sfm> I think 32...h5 33. Qg8+ Kh6 34. Qh8+ Kg5 35. Qxg7#
Aug-25-05  prinsallan: "<teme>: first" should be... "<teme>: first"!? or ?!... Dubious comment. See yesterdays game for more info ^^
Aug-25-05  mjk: <al wazir>It is a surprise to see White make three short ♕-moves so early. They may only have been possible because of 13...♘a6?.

Aug-25-05  DanRoss53: Black took quite a beating... after 18... f6? White held an obvious advantage and never had to look back.

  kevin86: White's attack had two prongs-mate and forcing a pawn through to queen. Black was able to stop the former-but not the latter. The rook sac had lots of kick to it.

Aug-25-05  YouRang: 29. Rxf6! Black, of course cannot recapture because of 30. Qxf6+ Kg8 31. Ne7#. (Sigh) I wish I could see moves like that.
Aug-25-05  Sonic Adventure: Very good pun today by <> !
Aug-28-05  patzer2: Tea's demolition of pawn structure with 29. Rxf6! initiates a winning passed pawn combination.
