5.Nh3! heads to d5 and prevents ..Qg5

  samsloan: This is one of the worst games that I have ever seen.

I do not understand how this can be regarded as a world championship game.

Feb-05-12  Knight13: 20... Nxd3 is probably better.

<samsloan> I understand. Especially White's moves from 26 to 32. Then there's 38... Be4? among others (11... Bf6, etc.).

Apr-23-16  EssChess: 20...Nb3 creates a triple fork on queen, rook and bishop..

44... Nxh6 should have been played

Oct-21-19  Granmaster NN: EssChess What the hell are you even talking about?First 20..Nb3 is illegal if you mean Nxd3 then Rxd3 Second if 44.. Nxh6 simply Nxg5+ winning the black rook on e4
