You have altogether 13 different games in your database for the player "Youssoupov", all played against Kevin Spraggett. "Youssoupov" is of course Yusupov, a major player, but no one would ever think to look up his games under such a spelling.

I recently uploaded 8 games from the 1989 candidates match between these two players, but now I find that your database in fact includes these games, except that they are listed with Yusupov's name spelled as here. Could you please correct the spelling, add these games to Yusupov's database, and disregard the games I uploaded? Thanks.

Feb-12-08  ounos: Nice queen sacrifice - white's chain collapsed immediately, from its root.

But 40. Nd6 was a pretty obvious mistake (time trouble?). Although black pieces already were restricting too much white's king.
