  An Englishman: Good Evening: Incredible! Was all of this sound? Oh, goodness, for once let's forget the silicon monsters--this looks like Nezhmetdinov at his best.
Feb-10-10  ChessApplet: Leaves me breathless...such beauty and brains. (sigh).:_)
Mar-08-10  computer chess guy: The initial sac 22. ♗xe4 is sound: White gets two pawns for the piece and a strong attack. The followup sac 25. ♗xd6 is also the best move, stronger than recapturing the Bishop with bxc3. Kudos to White for seeing these key moves.
Oct-01-10  Whitehat1963: Good Lord! This looks like Tal, Kupreichik, or Super Nez! Astounding!
Dec-11-14  siggemannen: I read somewhere that Svidler or/and Grishuk were really impressed with these tactics, saying something like "wish we could play like this". Can't find the source anymore though
Jan-25-15  Honey Blend: Throwing three minor pieces in a row like they were bullets - <GotD: Machine Gunina>
Aug-12-15  alphamaster: A real gem from Gunina.
Dec-12-15  mikealando: Wow. I referred to another game of hers as a "gem" just minutes ago. Let me not get carried away. It's only a gem. V Gunina vs Ju Wenjun, 2013
