Oct-17-06  ArmeniaNL: very impressive game!!!!!!!!!!! I like this style!
Oct-17-06  Gouki: very Morphy like playing style :D

sacrificing a piece in order to prevent black from castling.

also, this game features the instructive example that the one who develops their pieces first, as well as have control of the centre, is the one who is able to attack first and thus dictate the course of play.

I think the blunder was 4.....Qxd5? and better was 4...exd5, opening lines for the black's white bishop.

May-20-07  MarkN: I dunno, I'm not very good or anything, but it seems like black had things under control until his 24th move, and Andriasian got lucky that Rodshtein blundered away a piece. Can anyone comment and say if thats right?
Oct-22-07  DanRoss53: <MarkN> I'm inclined to agree (although I'm also a patzer); 24. ... ♖bc8 looks like a blunder to me.
