Apr-04-08  kellmano: Is it just me or is 24.... Qxc3+ really bad. Black looked ok till then.
Apr-04-08  JohnBoy: <kellmano> I think it's just you. By 24, black is in serious trouble. The issues are how to defend against Qf6 and Bd6 or Bc5. In fact, once the B moves from e7, Bg6 is also a real possibility. Lots of white cannons pointing at black's head. I think Nepo was wonderfully creative to survive as long as he did.
Oct-13-16  sachman19: Ivan Popov is best
