    until you look at the game from about move 20 to about move 21
    here's what happened:

    I played Nd5?? thinking that if Kxe8, Nf6 was mate. when I realized he had a knight on g4 (too late) I groaned, and told him "Nf6 would have been mate, but you had the knight..." and then I play h3 trying to at least win a knight... and what does he do? well, you can see for yourself... and the rest was history.

    That was quite generous of you to tip him off about the mate, he didnt take your advice it seems.

    yeah, that's what was almost sad...
    I actually had to think whether to give it to him, since I didn't really deserve it...
    I probably would have had it been in a real game...
    but since it was unrated, it ddoesn't matter, and I wanted to see that pretty knight mate set out on the board

    that's exactly what she looked like when I whipped out my big ten inch... well, you can finish the rest of Steven Tyler's composition...
