Jun-11-05  MarioBalibrera: I think if I were playing this game, I would have gone ahead and played Bxh6 on move 24. Two pawns for the bishop with mating prospects.

Aug-07-18  RookFile: Black's a8 bishop was an awful piece throughout.
Oct-08-22  VerySeriousExpert: 2.e5? is a bad move. Black should attack this weak pawn e5. If White wants to avoid 2.d4, he should choose the other move, for example Yury V. Bukayev's strong Jerome gambit deferred (Triumphant JG deferred or Fantastic Star JG deferred) 2.b3 e5 3.Bb2 etc.: . After 2.e5? d5? White should play 3.d4!, the move 3.exd6? is bad too: Black has a maximum advantage after 3.exd6? cxd6!.
