  noads4me: An elegant mate!
Jan-04-22  probabilitytheorist: Brilliant game!
Jan-04-22  andrewjsacks: Geometric.
Jan-04-22  Saniyat24: Aussie rules...!
Jan-04-22  green ink: White's 26. f4 was an okay move, but the simple 26. Re1! would have made black's situation even direr. Still, white was clearly winning until 40. Rxf7?? (Time trouble?) It must have really hurt, feeling a won game go downhill like that.

  mjmorri: Intuitively, 53. g4 seems to expose the White King, but tactically, it is not easy to exploit.
Jan-04-22  checkxmate: In the beginning of the game, after Black played Bb4 following the tricky Petrov's Defense, another option White had was to take the pawn on e5.

After White's 45. Qf6, there were a series of mistakes on both sides. Using Stockfish I was able to figure out that 50. h5 generated an average loss of around -2.7 for White. White should have focused on protecting the back rank, as it was in danger of Black's pawn promoting, which happened.

Jan-04-22  AlicesKnight: A mating-net apparently out of thin air. Fine finish to a fascinating game.
Jan-04-22  Brenin: An interesting game. If you click on the name of the tournament, the explanation of its rather curious name gives an interesting insight into the early colonial history of New Zealand.
Jan-04-22  Cheapo by the Dozen: Black lost rook for queen yet still managed to win. Quite a game.
