    Hazards of having too many windows open at once, or perhaps just being totally inattentive.

    Kevin, it has been a while, but I just finished this game. Thought it might be of some interest. Yes, it is freestyle.

    Quite an interesting game: positional exchange sac, then using the K actively to help the Q-side Ps as per Fischer vs Petrosian, Candidates, Yugoslavia, 1959. So you play the Frog well from both sides
