Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-05-07  krusheto: 16.Nxc3! demolishes the pawn structure and white is left defenseless. White should have resigned at this point instead of waiting to get mated. On another note this sac definitely goes in my collection.

  ketchuplover: What about 20.Bxf5?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <ketchuplover> 20.Bxf5 Bd3+ will cause White problems. If 21.Bxd3 Rxf3. If 21.Ka1 Rxf5. Black is still winning in my opinion.
Jan-10-14  French Chesslover: <Benzol> and <ketchuplover> 20.Bxf5 Rxf3 21.Bxe6+ R3f2 22.Rxf2 Rxf2 (Q vs R).
Jan-10-14  dusk: 13. Nxe4 dxe4 14. Bxe4 Qh4+ and white loses his bishop. Just writing it since some may fail to see this line at first glance like I did.
Jun-16-18  WorstPlayerEver: 13. Nxe4 dxe4 14. Qe2=
Jan-28-21  Brenin: Terrible pun, terrible play by White: with cxd4 playable by Black, 13 0-0-0 was asking for trouble, especially against a player of Nezhmetdinov's ability.

  OhioChessFan: Whoa, White just fell apart. Agreed with <Brenin> that 0-0-0 was a bad idea. Just on general principles, it has to be wrong. Definitely moved the wrong Rook to f1. How could anyone think it was a good idea to unprotect the d2 Knight? 15. Rhg1 is a total mystery. If White thought he could initiate an attack on the Kingside before Black attacked on the Queenside, Nezhmetdinov quickly corrected that misapprehension.
Jan-28-21  dhotts: A couple minor mistakes and White gets demolished. The Great Nezh at play.
