Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-02-03  PVS: Although not terrible, I pinpoint 17.Qd4 as the losing move, 17.Rfe1 is even worse because of 17...Ng4, but I believe that 17.Qh3 would have presented black with a severe problem.
Sep-21-04  Rowson: 35...Re1+ 36.Qxe1, Qxg2# or even better 35...Qxg2 36.Qxg2, Re1# nice defence from Ulf.

  plang: Andersson's defense with ..20 Kg8 is really gutsy. Sacrificing a pawn and allowing his King to be chased across the board took some courage. Illescas was guilty of forgetting about his back rank.
May-05-08  sitzkrieg: Stohl analyzes this game and gives the same alternatives as PVS (although Qd4 is not losing), but strangely enough fails to mention Rde1 which seems to be even stronger. For one, it wins a pawn and that is not even the best line for white.
Oct-17-15  ToTheDeath: A defensive and counterattacking masterpiece by Ulf Andersson. He sacs his kingside pawns to discoordinate the white forces and runs his king to safety, then exploits the haphazard white army and weak back rank beautifully to win.
