Sep-01-07  xeroxmachine: This game is worth watching.
May-25-08  computer chess guy: 23. Qe3? (better is 23. Qf4, preventing Nxe4. If .. g5 then 24. Qg3 and Nxe4 can be met with fxe4). Also, in the game line, instead of 25. Rd2, 25. Nc3 looks better.

nice analyse :)
May-28-09  xombie: Fascinating game. Yet again we see that when the rook steps down to the central squares it is with an intention to sacrifice itself. Glogiric's bishops are once again deadly.

For a moment i thought he was playing the diagonal opening pawn advance on the a file (which is also a very interesting theme). However, the blockade imposed on the c pawn did not last, as demonstrated by Sir Svetozar. Very nice game again.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Can White save himself with 37.Rxd7,Qxd7; 38.Rxc3? Obviously, Black won't play 38...Bxc3; 39.Qxc3,Qd1+; 40.Kb2,Qe2+; 41.Qc2, but how does he otherwise maintain the advantage?
Jan-05-20  tinnderbox: Hort defended well in extreme time trouble, up to the losing 38. Re1??

White has two ways to save the draw.

a) 38. Qb1 blocks all black attacks. The computer evaluation is 0.00 after 38. ... Qf4 39. Qb7 Qa4 40. Qb1 Qf4 etc.

b) 38. Rd6 Bxa2 39. Rxa2 c2+ 40. Rxf6 Qd4+ 41. Rb2 Qa4+ with a perpetual.
