Mar-21-04  PAWNTOEFOUR: now why can't every game be like this?...i didn't even have to pull chessmaster out for this one!!!
Nov-01-04  Theoryhack: Note the lack of automatic castling. White keeps his king in the centre, with the idea of Nd5 Qxd2 Kxd2 and playing an endgame. he only plays OO as part of a tactical sequence.
Jun-17-11  estrick: John Nunn cites this game as an example of why taking the seemingly free c-pawn on move 12 is too dangerous for Black in "Beating the Sicilian" 1984
