Feb-23-06  Nobutitis: Wow. This is certaihly quite a
courageous player as White here?

For heaven's sake, Gulko, why not
just 25...0-0?

Because then 26 c4! is crisp.

  chancho: Gulko is the guy who has a plus on Kasparov. Vesko defeated him beautifully here.
Apr-19-12  MarkFinan: Why does white refuse the b6 pawn 3 times?
And what was wrong with Rc1+?
Im tired, but It's still way beyond my comprehension!
