Nov-26-06  Stellar King: great classical bishop sacrifice!!
Apr-19-07  BadTemper: wowie
Apr-19-13  Captain Hindsight: <24. Qg4+ Kxf6 25. Qg5#> would have shortened the game with reasonable promptness.
Jul-09-16  chessperson2222222: Game notation is inaccurate. Alex played 23..Kg8 not 23..Kg6??.
Mar-25-18  Defrogger: <Captain Hindsight> Haha! Played through the whole game, then saw your comment. But if Alex indeed played 23...Kg8, as <chessperson2222222> suggested, then the game sequence makes sense
