Jun-04-03  ksadler: Could Macieja not have gotten a draw with 28. Qf8? I suppose that he was down in the match and needed wins, not draws.
Jul-18-03  pawndpusher: I think that you are 100% correct!

  cu8sfan: I don't think the choice of the opening was the problem here. It's more that you are playing Karpov period.
Aug-07-04  ArturoRivera: Think you are right <cu8sfan> beacause of this game Spassky vs Karpov, 1982, but his defeat against king's gambit was from no more than Spassky itself, the one who made Fischer bited the sand with it, Boris Spassky the last Knight of the board!

  Honza Cervenka: In fact white got quite fine play from the opening and lost the game only by misfortunate attempt to play it for win. He could force draw by perpetual easily at several points but tried to get more instead of that and failed. Of course, it was rapid game in an exhibition match and Macieja was down in the match and so his decision is quite understandable here.
