Apr-11-09  bumpmobile: Wouldn't 32.e6+ be even more decisive? (Note: the answer is obviously 'no' since he didn't play it; The question I am actually asking is why didn't he play it?)

This puzzle made me realize that <IF YOU HAVE ONE TARGET ON THE BOARD (undefended Black g3-bishop), THEN <<<THE ENEMY KING *AUTOMATICALLY* SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS THE SECOND TARGET FOR A DOUBLE ATTACK>>>, AND VICE VERSA>.

Apr-25-09  Andrijadj: Notyetagm,you always do good job explaining tactical motifs.Perhaps you should consider running a chess school or smth...

Of course,to do that you need to stick to teaching,and restrain from bashing Kramnik:)))

Jun-15-09  sfm: <HannibalSchlecter: 27. Bg3?? 28.Rxd5! Boomshakala!> Sorry, it is "Boomshakalaka".
