Yasser had figured the Q-sac drawing line out before playing it. with the help of James Blackwood with a third person, I believe it was either Donaldson or Pupols, I can't remember which. This was an interesting look at the alternatives of not going for the draw with Nb5, lots of very interesting and sharp variations in this one! Nice choice for a presentation, thanks!

At 28:16 Dennis wonders what White can play after ...Kc8, suggesting Qxa6+. I'm no Tal, but I'd just go for Qb8# :)

I saw that too but figured I must be missing something :)

Yeah I noticed that too :) If I remember rightly though at that point white could even skip a move or two and still come out winning. :lol:

I probably won't be much help with the chess analysis, but you weren't far off with your pronounciation of Glenrothes - it has a long O, as in "bother". So: "Glen-roth-es". And I can't really understand why Spassky and Tal were playing there either...

Wow, I missed mate in one? You can't expect me to find everything, can you? :) (I'm at least relieved that the moves I did suggest were still okay.)

@ d.w.fowler: Thanks.

@ dchrist: On behalf of the viewers, thanks!
