    An amazing game which was posted on the English Chess Forum by Richard James (of chesskids.com fame)

    A super game and by all accounts now unique in OTB play.

    At move 29, why didn't black play KxH7?

    I loved the opening, then realized it was going to go past move 25, and then it got better! What a plot for a game!

    Wow, I feel like Watson after Holmes made solving a mystery look so...elementary.

    Thanks for explaining that, King.

    That idea of a bishop on the b1-h7 diagonal pinning the black pawn on g6 if Black's king is on h7 is a very common idea in Colle / Stonewall games. One of the few useful things I picked up from playing the Stonewall attack for ten dreary years!

    Amazing game. Which shows that it's not the opening in itself that counts, but the ideas, the guts and the execution.
