    i detect a hint of sarcasm .

    Here's the story anyways...

    ivan asked me to play an unrated game as practice for him and then annotate it afterwards.. so we chatted a lot in game and then i wrote up a quick annotation. emphasis on quick apparently

    anyways the game is a nice one to look at whether you like the annotation or not.. it was a tactical game and the moves were pretty obvious.

    Don't shoot the good samaritan .

    f4 and it looks like close to a lost game. white has a huge lead in development, the pawn storm is half way through, black is cramped and has not even started the counter-attack. a sitting duck waiting to become shot.

    Sorry to tell you this Matt but if Black had played 25...Ka7 then Black is clearly better I think!! Also I think 23...Qc5+ is more accurate however I don't know if it makes much difference to the position.

    Amazing though that both players played well known book moves all the way to move 25!!!

    I don't get it. Well-known book moves should never come as a surprise in a correspondence game, right?

    What a pathetic demonstration of black's most awesome defense. Just a bad game.

    Yes, that would be totally true. I hope the wink indicates that you did look through the second half of that graph.
