Feb-12-06  refutor: this is an exciting game

  GrahamClayton: Riumin's pawn sacrifice 16...g5?! leads to a very complicated and double-edged position. He is forced to sacrifice a rook with 22...h4 as 22...e4 23. fxe4 ♕xe4+ 24. ♕xe4 ♗xe4+ 25. ♔h3 and White repels the attack.

  nizmo11: <Sergey Voronkov> cites comments by Ilia Kan that conclude: "One of the most exiting games in the history of modern chess."
Surely must have been an exciting game to watch!
Like many exciting games it was not very correctly played. The game was decided by the blunder 40. g4?, though at this point White's win was not so clear anymore.
