    What's the story !!

    Howard !

    How did you win !!

    Did you lean over and plant a big sloppy kiss on Ross's cheek ??

    I thought you had sufficient compensation for the exchange when I left but I did not expect you to win.

    Could you please post the game ?

    Time. The last 10 moves were done with 1 minute on the clock - both sides. Ross' flag fell.

    It was a good game, sent HIARCS 10 into overdrive on 30 secs analysis per move. Really needs at least a minute a move or more. HIARCS has me at -2.5 after the exchange, and +4 only a few moves later. Jacob Edwards tells me it was complicated and he couldn't assess it in passing. Critical errors (of course) from both sides. A draw would have been a fair result in the end. Needless to say I was most pleased with my play. Ross was a gentleman. There's much in this game that is relevant to other threads concerning draw offers and time pressure.

    Yes, but that's not a bad thing is it?

    It is not unusual for a computer to say this after an exchange sac. The engines usually need to be prodded for a few moves to get a more realistic evaluation.

    Engines love swallowing material and then defending for a while and keeping the extra material.

    Yes it looked interesting. I was only looking in passing too but I was expecting white to play c5 just before taking the exchange instead of exchanging pawns on d5.

    I also wondered if you would have been better taking the knight on c3 instead of taking the sickly looking bishop on d2. Taking the knight would have got you out of some the cheapo's white was threatening when he moved his rook opposite your queen on the c-file.

    Anyway, look forward to having a closer look when you post the game.

    Cheers George.

    I've knocked this up from memory. Its all accurate until the endgame scramble. I will fix any errors later.

    Well played Howard.

    Next week will be another hard game for you.

    I can feel a Tromp coming on.

    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    I thought the answer was obvious. 1 d4 h6 wins a bishop.
