Apr-13-04  ConLaMismaMano: Very nice game by Bruzon!
May-10-04  Tigran Petrosian: Indeed!
May-22-04  SADDAM: this game is annotated in the latest issue of chess life.
Apr-08-05  notyetagm: In which issue of Chess Life is this game annotated? May '04?

Very nice combination beginning with 16 ♖xb6!! and 17 ♘d5!.

May-18-05  notyetagm: 16 ♖xb6!! and 17 ♘d5! is an advanced example of the idea that <to remove the f6-knight defender of the h7-mating focal point, attack the knight and another piece at the same time>. Here 17 ♘d5! attacks both the f6-knight and the Black queen on e7 simultaneously. The main idea of this line, not forced of course, is the mate on the h7-square resulting from 16 ♖xb6!! axb6 17 ♘d5! ♘xd5 18 ♕h5 ♘f6 19 ♖xf6! ♕xf6 20 ♕h7#. A beautiful combination, in which White sacrifices each of his rooks for a Black knight, the b6-knight which defends the d5-square and the f6-knight which defends the h7-square.
May-17-06  notyetagm: This is really a great attacking game by Bruzon.
May-17-06  notyetagm: A worthy successor to Vaganian vs Kupreichik, 1974 in the Vaganian Gambit Trompowsky.

  plang: This was the first of three games in the tournament where Nijboer defended against the gambit with 6..e5. He scored 1-2 with a win against Stefanova and a loss to Nakamura. 10..Be7? was the wrong square for the bishop which is much better placed on d6 as in Soos-Leko Budapest 1993. Black was not able to recover after 12..h6?; better would have been 12..Qa5 13 Qd2..a6 14 0-0..0-0 15 a4 though White would have had good compensation for the pawn.

There are several variations in the Trompovsky where Black goes after the b-pawn but they all score very well for White.
