  notyetagm: This has got to be the absolute worst game I have ever seen a GM play. Even us lowly USCF class players would never in a million years play 7 ♘xe5?? with our king and queen lined up on the e-file and our opponent already castled. What was Vescovi thinking?
May-16-07  Knight13: <What was Vescovi thinking?> "I think Nxe5 is playable. I can defend it with c3 and d4."

<After 8...Bxf2+> "What the... Crap I didn't see that."
