Feb-28-09  WhiteRook48: I think this game was reviewed somewhere at my chess club! Kosteniuk, by the way, was Krushed.
Apr-25-09  Dredge Rivers: This much hotness in one place ought to be illegal!

<14.Nxe6> looks good. If 14...fxe6 15.Bxe6+ wins the piece back immediately. An interesting line is 14...Nxc3 15.Qg4 (threatening mate) fxe6 16.Rxd7 Qxd7 17.Bxe6+ Qxe6 18.Qxe6, when White has a material edge but it's still a game.
