    Thanks, it was a thriller! I couldn't see all the moves very clearly but listening to the comments and to see how fast the players made their decisions was fascinating.

    This must have been around 1992. I wonder how much time was left on Henley's clock?

    Nov. 17, 1992
    The clocks have a 5 min dial on them meaning one revolution of the hand = 5 mins. Henley had just seconds left, if you look, his flag isn't down yet, but it was hanging.

    Do you have any more games to show, as good as that one?

    I liked the commentary. It was brief ,explained the game pretty well, didn't distract or go too deep or technical.

    I found that one by accident. If I do I'll be sure to share.

    I suppose they didn't have time to go too deep or technical - it was all so very fast!
    I liked it very much!

    Thank you - it was even better than a movie!

    I think it would have been totally pathetic for Polgar to have won on time when she clearly had a lost final position. That would not be a victory to crow about and have the game score framed to put on your wall or anything. This is my attitude towards the blitz games I play on RHP. If I lose on time but have a won position I still consider it a moral victory.

    Great entertainment at the end. I still prefer The Master Game format with the players adding their own commentary. There's quite a few of those uploaded to YouTube. Here we have RHPs very own RJ Hinds playing the white pieces versus a Russian GM.

    A win is a win. A loss is a loss. Maybe you have a better position because you took too much time. Just saying. A win by Polgar would have been excellent and a tribute to her ability to think chess and to move quickly. Anyway, I could not stand to take that much time the guy did in the opening. But it worked for him, barely.

    Huh? Joking about RJ.

    Did you notice the comments.

    "Gawd doesn't Tony Slattery look GORGEOUS?"

    "Aww, young Tony is so adorable!"

    No not really.
