Re: NOVA 2012 Progress
I agree with Zilon that no comments should be made about posted
games which are still in progress. However, thornydevil's comment
was about a "position of days gone by" and was harmless enough. His
observation is correct, though. It would seem to me that Black
would have had to resign after 32. Qxe3.

And, one more thing. If Zilon ever, as Black, plays 1. d4, d5
2. c4, Nf6 shall we call him Marshall Zilon? (And I realize
that the, "i" in Zilon is probably pronounced like the, "i" in
"high", not the "i" in, "hill" as my joke requires, but gimme
a little comedic license!)

Re: NOVA 2012 Progress
I was very aware to not make a comment that would affect the game. I find it interesting that so many simple mistakes are made in corr games.

No harm done, the comment didnt affect the game in any way.
 
About the mistakes, your quite right. I can only speak for myself, with family, work and other hobbies as well I simply seems to have trouble giving my games enough time. Sometimes I only spend a few seconds for a move... Other times much more ofcourse.
 
this time I was so focused on the development of the game exchaning queens, I just didnt look for any other possibility but was completely focused on the endgame after exchaning queens.
