Mar-21-09  WhiteRook48: 27. Qxe7!!! is so brilliant because white exploits the black knight guarding e5.
Jul-16-09  ILoveCrazyhouse: 27. Qxe7 does not deserve any exclamation marks, ESPECIALLY NOT 3 of them considering 26. Qxe7 was missed.
May-28-12  vinidivici: Dont u dare to take the queen with the knight.

after that Be5 and the king died

  GrahamClayton: Despite Amin missing 26. ♕xe7, this game shows how potent the KIA attack is , when White can open the centre with 23. ♘xd5 followed by the pawn thrust 24. e6.
Apr-29-20  jith1207: <considering 26. Qxe7 was missed.> Amin - I mean - he gives the opponent chance to redeem himself and still wins emphatically.

Understand he missed out a move earlier, but It's not like missing out the chance to play the whole line, his opponent gets to either stop that sacrifice by adding one more support with his own Queen nevertheless or stop the mating line but just was completely lost at that point.

May-01-20  morfishine: If anything deserves an exclaim its <23.Nxd5>
May-01-20  mrknightly: Explain "pun," please. Thanks.
