Jun-07-04  Whitehat1963: I realize black is down a knight, but is it over? Is there a mating attack here as well?
Jun-07-04  acirce: If Black had any counterplay at all it could in some positions be worth playing on but this is totally over since White has a bishop more AND superior position (compare the d5 bishop with the f8 one, etc.)
Jul-19-05  WMD: Won't be seeing this in Bacrot's Best Games.
Jan-16-06  BeanEater: considering he was 9 years old, not bad at all....
Feb-19-06  THE pawn: <WMD> I hope you don't consider the ''notable games'' feature some of Bacrot's best games.

  FSR: I wonder why Bacrot didn't play 38.Nd5 winning an exchange, and leaving himself a whole rook up.
Dec-18-08  I Offer You A Resign: Oh man... how many times have I fell for this!
Dec-25-08  Fuzzy: I think... Kuliev... played rather badly this game, excluding the early knight trap, nine year old or not
