Aug-24-14  hcgflynn: Really strong game, I think both player did their best. I have two observations though:

1. What is wrong with 24. - Qxc2?
2. 31. Bxf6 surely looks better.

Aug-24-14  siggemannen: Perhaps black didn't like 24... Qxc2 25. Bxc4

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Exciting struggle. White was as brave in defense as Black in attack, and a draw is the fair result--although I can't help but suspect that the silicon monsters will find a missed win for at least player. Black's sacrifice of the Ra8 so early in the game marks another example of Rapport's ability to summon an attack from nothing.
