Mar-28-07  sharkbenjamin: What a game!
This is incredible! Seldom do you see this short a game in the Sicilian Defense, Najdorf, Opocensky Variation Traditional Line, (B92). 32 moves! Wow!
Apr-08-07  xanadu: This line with 16...Bg5 seems to be a bad choice for Black. I found 7 games in ChesGames, with +4 =3 for White. After this move the bishop is far from the center and of the main strategic topics of the game related to the pawn advances on the c and d columns.
Apr-08-07  Silverstrike: Why not 25...Qxd6 ?
Apr-08-07  Towershield: 25...Qxd6 followed by Rb6 & d6 winning.
Apr-08-07  Silverstrike: <Towershield> Of course. Thank you. :)

  Bobsterman3000: wow. Amazing game. 22. c5 is so far beyond the range of even my most vivid dreams. I wish I could be a 2700 just for 5 minutes so I could comprehend that move temporarily.
