Dec-28-06  Karpova: 32....Qxf2 is a nice move!
The black rooks are a pleasure to watch afterwards.
Dec-28-06  malthrope: Hehehe... The two rooks 'eat' while the queen can only 'sweep & sleep!' ;-)
Dec-31-06  HoopDreams: it would been fun to see what would have happend if white had castled queenside
Jan-01-07  alicefujimori: It's interesting to see Rybka giving the currently popular Dragadorf variation a try but unfortunately X Gandalf did not enter into the most topical of lines with 11.0-0 (11.0-0-0 is the topical line at the moment).
Aug-24-08  myschkin: . . .

32. …, Qxf2!! 33. Rxf2, axb3 and we’re watching in complete astonishment how White is completely lost because of a decisive breakthrough on the queenside. 34. Rf1, bxc2 35. Rc1 doesn’t help because Black’s b-pawn is coming. White didn’t see anything better but 34. Qxb4, bxc2 35. Rxc2, Rxc2 when the two black rooks easily consumed two more pawns and forced White to resign.
