Apr-21-06  DIEGOGG: What a cool-blooded defense by Yusupov!
24...Nf3+ is one of the greatest moves I ever seen.
Jul-05-08  apexin: nice game.
Aug-21-19  Retireborn: Anything known about the occasion/tournament of this game?

Aug-21-19  Retireborn: <Straclonoor> Wow! Instant reply. Many thanks!

Chessbase annotates the game in rather a lot of detail, with notes from Shakhmaty; they point out that Yusupov goes wrong with 22...Bxb2, allowing White to seize a draw with 23.Bxg7! Bxg7 24.Rxd5!....but he plays the moves in the wrong order, which lets the black queen reach c1.
