Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-05-05  azaris: Textbook demolition of the French kingside. Black actually had some drawing chances before the awful blunder 27...Qf4??.
May-16-05  notyetagm: This game just finished 6th with 30 points in the recent voting for the Best Chess Game in Chess Informant 91, getting LarryC's 10-point vote (i.e., LarryC thought it was the best game in the Informant).
Apr-18-06  notyetagm: 23 ♗c4! threatens to <REMOVE THE GUARD> by capturing the Black f7-pawn with 24 ♗xf7!, the pawn chain base that prevents a crushing breakthrough against the g6-square.
Oct-07-10  sevenseaman: This game ought to have made more waves than it looks it has.
Apr-30-19  PJs Studio: Sutovsky knows how to use the heavy pieces eh? 🙄✅

  Honza Cervenka: 23...Qxh4 was a suicide. On the other hand, 21.f4! avoiding e6-e5-e4 was more precise. 21.Rg3 gave black a chance to survive. Awesome game by Sutovsky.
