Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-30-04  InspiredByMorphy: Blacks Queen rook starts a massacre! What a game by Black!
Feb-16-04  karlzen: Great! That Ra6-h6 maneouvre always works in the BG. It didn't exactly help white that he never castled and instead helped the attacker by moving his h-pawn.
May-10-09  Trigonometrist: The Bishop on c8 is not at all developed!
May-10-09  blacksburg: wow this is a crazy game.

  offramp: To win with the Budapest in Budapest; very romantic.
Nov-08-13  Infohunter: What a game! And what a finish! And that's on top of the previous commentator's observation:

<offramp: To win with the Budapest in Budapest; very romantic.>

Nov-08-13  King Sacrificer: Looks like a Nezhmetdinov game!
Nov-08-13  Conrad93: This game isn't that crazy. The queen is kind of useless if the king is relentlessly attacked.
Nov-08-13  kyg16: What a game!! Terrific combination by black.

13. f4 looks as the best for white.

No computers here though, correct me if wrong.

Nov-08-13  Balmo: Hey my pun got used, great! I really liked this game, especially as a Budapest Gambit aficionado. Kahn has had some great wins with the Budapest, check out his profile for some other exciting victories with it.

  Phony Benoni: Philidor would not approve of Black's pawn play.
Nov-08-13  hedgeh0g: 20...Nxf1! invites a very pretty mate after 21.Kg2?? Rg3+! 22.Kxh1 Rg1#
Nov-08-13  pericles of athens: 24...Ba7, really?

Even my beginner eyes saw 24...Rxc3 (but maybe it doesn't even really matter by this stage).

Nov-08-13  Mr. President: Yes, we kahn!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Beautiful game. As for the pun, no comment: Kahn do (Did ya, Evarth?)
Nov-08-13  Moszkowski012273: 14...Bxe3 is more convincing
Premium Chessgames Member
  Zhbugnoimt: Rxc3+ would not work because Nxb. Ba7 was correct
Nov-08-13  Chessman1504: Man, what a game!
Nov-09-13  Moszkowski012273: Actually 24...Rxc3 is best
