Near the end, David shows another variant beginning with
, He is less certain about this line and the best he could come up with is

Without looking at the article, yes Alan and bob440 are both correct and I am wrong.
I recommend to everyone to follow Alan's example, and use a vertical bar at the start of variations in every comment. Repeat the entire variation from the game continuation, in this case bob440 versus BetsyBoop. Your comment should work regardless of what other variation a reader was looking at previously in some other comment.

Gee, I was not clear about the vertical bar meaning, even after reading Alan's FAQ, so I did the following experiment. Maybe I did not HAVE TO post this - if everyone else was perfectly clear on it, but if it helps out, then good.
First, post a variation from the text above - say, Alan's variation 2 posts up (click on move 15).
Try clicking at the end of my variation with NO vertical bar, and then try clicking on the variation WITH the bar - IT WIPES AWAY ALL POSTED VARIATIONS, and only uses the original game moves at the top, plus your new variation.
Now, if I could only LOCATE THE DAMN VERTICAL BAR on my keyboard, I'd be a happy cat! (meow)
