Aug-13-03  ksadler: For those who are interested, this game is annotated at http://www.chesscafe.com/text/yaz07...
Dec-03-03  Catfriend: Another strong game by Christiansen! Re6!! is very precise. Black resigns as he loses after each move. 21.. Q:c3 22. Bf4! winning
Aug-08-05  turkishgrandmaster: Maybe if black didn't do 19... Rf8? But 19...Qd5! he had some hope.
Nov-11-05  Averageguy: <turkishgrandmaster> After 19...Qd5 20.Ne5 whites attack is reaching menacing proportions, he is already threatening 21.Nxd7 Qxd7 22.Re7. Anyway on move 19 the rook was already on f8, it move there on move 17. If you meant 17...Qd5 then I think that 18.Qe7 is still strong.
