May-03-04  Bobsterman3000: Ouch.
May-03-04  seoulmama: Why on earth did Speelman play on for so long?! Out of annoyance perhaps?!
Nov-01-05  ConfusedPatzer: That must had been embarrassing... Poor Speelman was probably itching to beat Kasparov.
May-11-10  hedgeh0g: What was the point of all those sacrifices?

it did not achieve the desired result, in the end it was a BLUNDER.

Nov-13-17  LA MAN: Why not nxn. On 20th. By white? So what if white fights hard with and open game? Did I miss something?

20.Nxd4 Qxg3+ 21.Ke2 Qg2+ is draw by perpetual check and 22.Kd2 Qxf4+ 23.Kc3 Bxd3 is worse than a draw for White.

Nov-13-17  Olavi: The real blunder was 18...Nc6, speculating on the hanging position of the Rc1. Such things happen in blitz.
Nov-13-17  RookFile: I don't know why you even think about not playing ...Bxd3 when you have a chance. Trade your lousy bishop for white's good one.
