Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-27-05  weisyschwarz: Very impressive show by Bacrot!! He played the Berlin Defense with gusto, developing quickly, and offered a fabulous sacrifice as well. I hope he is a contender until the end!
Nov-28-05  mulondabl: im not sure about 10.Rd1 and 12.Nh4 moves. They wasted a lot of time for white
Nov-30-05  sharkbenjamin: What a game!
Mar-25-06  blingice: It doesn't seem horribly and irreconciliably lost, Chessmaster gives this line: <-1.94 1.Bb2 Re6 2.Kf1 Rxc6 3.Ke2 Rcd6 4.Rd1 c6 5.Nf1 Rh3 6.Nxd2 Rxh4>

The pawn won't advance.

Jun-29-14  whiteshark: Bacrot missed the tactical shot <11... Nd4!>
