Aug-27-09  KingG: The move 14.e5 reminds me of the e5 push in the famous game Ljubojevic vs Ulf Andersson, 1976, although the follow up was a little different.

  ToTheDeath: Giving up the knight is so weak! 17...b4 18.Ne4 Kh8 should have been tried.
Jul-31-18  Strelets: <ToTheDeath> The problem with that variation is that White has 19.Nf3, giving him a winning position.
Dec-11-18  MrJafari: I think Black played inaccurate specially at the endgame...
Dec-11-18  RookFile: Oh, if black could only trade rooks. Of course, Kasparov wouldn't let him.
