Notes on chess in Chicago.
What happened? Did White resign? Did Black flag?
Fixed now, I think. 0-1 was in the PGN header, but it didn't render in Chess Flash for whatever reason.
As a matter of fact, the diagrammed position was the key position of the game. I saw the eventual fork Nf5+, illusorily prevented by my pinned e-pawn, and figured my opponent, in time trouble (about 3 minutes remaining to reach move 40), would assume it was a typical B-player blunder and go for it. The trap worked, as he played the fork instantly. But then ....Qb6 wins back the piece with a crushing attack.
