Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-19-08  ToTheDeath: For an opening that's supposedly "busted" the Budapest sure is a persistent little sucker- especially when it's in Shaka's hands.

26.fxg4 Rxd3! 27.Rf1 Qd8 28.Rf3 hxg4 29.Rxg3 Rxa3 is quite precarious for White. Shaka is clearly not a student of the "look for a draw with Black" school of thought- against d4 he scores 40%!

Jan-05-09  notyetagm: Wow, an excellent tactical game by Mamedyarov.
Jan-05-09  slomarko: 42...g1=N+! must have made Van Welly fell of his chair.
Feb-27-09  Mulyahnto: <slomarko: 42...g1=N+! must have made Van Welly fell of his chair.> Yes, I was wondering how black was going to get out of the mate threat on b7, thinking black was 1 tempo short of the win.
