I discovered a new great game! Iskov-Plaskett

I have never seen this game until this week. I find it to be very instructional and entertaining. This game does a very good job of illustrating the attack on a castled King, when both sides castle in opposite directions. In this game Plaskett does a great job of punishing Iskov for playing a strange opening.

By the way, I recently discovered that the java chess program and this overall site works better with Internet Explorer than Mozilla Firefox.
