Hey, I'm just a lurker, and I never bothered to look at this page until now, when the game is over, but could someone explain why Ze had to resign after your last move. Was there no way he could work it into a draw?

* Black's bishop will easily be able to pick up white's pawns on a4 and d5 leaving black with 4 extra pawns two of which are protected and passed. It should be pretty obvious at that point that black can queen one or more of those pawns and win.

Postgame

I figured we could shoot the shit about the game here... arc

I had an absolute blast, lurking as I did. I learned more about this game than I would have believed possible, just from watching someone else play. The introduction to 'line analysis' was very interesting to me. I really appreacite the level of commentary that Brigade and Kingpatzer brought to the game, as well as so many other's insights. Now we have to pony up for the consolation prize.  :) SaintPeter 12:06, 15 August 2006 (PDT)

As an observer, I'd like to know the Fabulosos view of the turning point/move in this game. Besides sitting down across from you folks, where did Ze go wrong? What was his worst move -- the point at which you knew it was history? Terry

I started to feel OK during the series of moves where we chased his knight back to a2. After that, it seemed like our positions were pretty solid.bobby_macrap at me

I think Ze dropping the pawn was critical on move 14. He never recovered. We were then able to bring more pieces to attack the e4 square. When it fell after the f pawn exchange, the game was over. My favorite move is still 20. ... Rac8 That moves looks like a loss of tempo on the surface, but if you look more closely at it, it's quite an amazing move. It's defensive and offensive at the same time. I agree with Bobbie mac. After his knight went back to a2, Ze had just lost tons of moves for nothing on that knight. Even Ze's move to grab the b file on move 21, I thought lost tempo. V1 14:11, 15 August 2006 (PDT)

I had a lot of fun playing with you guys. I just want to thank you all for making this a great experience! PTWhipplebangSR! 14:30, 15 August 2006 (PDT)

I personally think Ze lost the game by failing to play either 9. cxd5 or 12. cxd5. Because of this we were able to play 14. ... dxc4 and then positionally strangle him. I had a lot of fun. It's been many years since I played serious chess and it was interesting to revisit the game. Jeff 15:01, 15 August 2006 (PDT)
