Nov-13-03  youngplayer11: A great game!black Quickley grabs the initiative and finishes white off with a back rank combination.typical Kasparov
Apr-26-05  who: Though I am surprised Kasparov didn't play 2...cxd4
Apr-30-06  GarryBonaparte: 'If not you, then who?'
(motivational message posted on
wall as a teen).
Sep-11-07  crisP: Does Black's 6..Bb4 to prevented by 6. a3? If not, what's the most accurate continuation after 6.Bb4?
Jun-18-08  Marmot PFL: <crisP:> If white plays 6.Be3 (6.Ndb5, Nxc6 or Be2 are all probably better) than the way he plays is good up unitl 10.Bd4?! Unfortunately after 10...Nxc3 11.bc3 loses to Qxd4, so after 11.Bxc3 Bxc3+ white loses all chance of initiative and just has bad pawns. Better is 10.Bd2 or the pawn sacrifce 10.0-0 Nxc3 11.bc3 Bxc3 12.Rb1, which black might well decline with 10...Nxe3 11.fe3 Bxc3 12.bc3 0-0 and the game is roughly =.
Jun-18-08  Marmot PFL: Here is a game where the pawn sac works well for white - E Paoli vs Foltys, 1949 As I said, black should probably decline that pawn.
Oct-09-13  swapan kumar: rotate board facility is required to understand blacks play better.
Feb-12-17  MrJafari: Why White resigned at this point? While it seems he could defend the threat?!
Feb-12-17  WorstPlayerEver: Left with a lost endgame. For instance:

-23. Rd8 Rd8 24. g3 Rd2 25. Qe1 Qd4 26. c3 Qc3

-23. Bb3 Rd1 24. Qd1 Rb8 25. g3 Rb4 26. Qe2 a5 27. a4 h5 28. Kg2 h4 29. Qe3 Qe3 30. fe3 Kg7
