Aug-05-19  areknames: A beautiful attacking and highly instructive game that shows why pawn grabbing in the opening is not a good idea. In the final position I'm not quite sure how White mates if Black plays 27...Ka3 (or Kxb3). A safe reply would be 28.Qxd7 and then go after the King.
Sep-29-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: Given that this game is all about a king hunt, I propose calling it Persson of Interest.
Sep-29-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: Hah. I can't submit that pun. Somebody beat me to the idea!

  perfidious: That player name fairly screams for puns--the most difficult chore is coming up with something which displays some originality, a Sisyphean task I leave to others with far more imagination than I possess.
