2007-02-11 15:18:37Chessdoom16042 easy 4 me! 
2007-08-24 12:35:03tmprat1274No big deal. Overrated. 
2008-10-23 21:40:49Elroch1466Very odd. Who would play anything else? 
2010-03-16 19:58:57Carbonic1622WTF what is that ? 
2010-12-28 10:01:04ValdorMcLutzky1378Only reason I gained so few points was wasting time looking for a better tactic...

2011-06-19 00:01:46Dayoman1350The thing is that a lot of players play a2 and then promote to a queen (and at the same time deliver a check). However, that is a winning position for white (with the rook). Instead, one plays Bd5 to achieve a certain draw. 
2014-02-18 15:27:40nune1615@Dayoman, after a2, g8=Q+ is check for white, so black can't promote.
