Feb-01-04  Catfriend: Wow! It surely does! And surely so if we"ll consider b6's chances to be another one!
Feb-01-04  Catfriend: 58.♘c5!! is beautiful!
Apr-27-04  Whitehat1963: How many queens can one have and still lose?

  kevin86: The pawn at b6 is a necessary part of the mating net-and is better than a queen!
Oct-30-04  Knight13: Lots of wasted moves.
Feb-22-05  aw1988: <Knight13> How is that?
Sep-24-05  blingice: You mean all of the king moving?
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: this game is extraordinary!!
Aug-01-09  WhiteRook48: seriously white was better even with black's two queens: extra pawns
Aug-01-09  Granny O Doul: I was wondering if 67. Rdd7 was simpler but ...Qh3+ 68. Kf3 Qd1+ 69. Kf4 Qf5# suggests maybe not.
Sep-01-17  Toribio3: Great game by Ljubojevic!
