Dec-04-15  happyjuggler0: In this 59 move French, black's light squared bishop didn't move until move 55. Talk about bad bishops....

  perfidious: It is ironic that Polgar's king found safety on the kingside, of all places to wind up in this variation.
Apr-12-16  Dragi: ok i am not saying that i would reach this position but why black plays 36.Q f8? why not 36.Qe7? ...i dont see clear continuation for white and black has two dangerous passing pawns ...Qf8 is not a solid move...Nikolic lost in completley winning position due to his sharp attack which ended in cabbage field...
