  beenthere240: I think Stefanova was way ahead in the game. 10. b3 may well have been a trap leading up to the disasterous pawn snatch 14....Nxc3? Although who could have foreseen 19.Bc7!! 5 moves previously?
Jul-25-07  ikipemiko: Watch the position after the white 18th move. Although white is rook down , its pieces are much better placed and coordinated that the future material loses for black are inevitable. Good Game - to crush a strong opponent in just 20 moves.
Jan-18-11  BLarsen1967: 2.Bf4 - Once again we see this healthy obsession,this highly central part of La Stefanova's philosophy: Make Sure that your queen bishop becomes a very active,hot piece on the board! - btw,Vlastimil Hort was masterful too with that bishop --- Ah,I think the game is almost lost for Black after 17.Qxb7. The Great Alisa G.,now Russian Champ,she might've gone for 17..Nb4,yet after 18.Qxd7 Nxd3 19.Rab1 Bb4 20.Qxe6+ Kh8 21.Bg3 things still look quite troublesome for Black
Jul-06-16  BOBMITCHNZ: 19 ....Rf7 was the last throw of the dice for Galliamova, hoping perhaps for brain fade, but White's final move was top class!
