Jan-06-10  swordfish: Magnuschess - did you journey down to the old Ottoman capital of Bursa to see the tourney in person?
Jan-06-10  computer chess guy: 21. .. f5? was dangerous for Black (.. ♘c6 looks like a good alternative).
Jan-08-10  magnuschess: no i didn't go to bursa to see the tourney , but i had been in there several times...
Jan-09-10  panzerkampf: ilk defa türk gördüm bu sitede, magnuschess demek, ben de çok tutarým magnus'u.

great game against a much higer rated opponent!! well done!!

Jan-10-10  magnuschess: bende hiç türkle karþýlaþmamýþtým ;) demekki türk satranç severlerden hala takip edenler var uluslar arasý satrancý ;)
Jan-11-10  muratski: Bir sonraki Dunya Sampiyonu Turk olacak! Aha suraya yaziyorum!
Jan-11-10  mertangili: Evet bu sitede bu kadar Türk olduðunu ben de bilmiyordum. <muratski> temennine katýlmakla beraber bunun þu anki þartlarda tatlý bir hayalden öte olmadýðýný düþünüyorum. Ama Emre Can da yakýnda GM olacaktýr ve inþallah 2600 üstü puanlara ulaþacaktýr.

Note: I personally got a little bit annoyed to come across with kibitzes in a language other than English as it contadicts with the internationality of the site and limits the number of viewers. But in this particular case, regarding a prospective Turkish player I couldn't help to join the chat in my native language. So apologies from non-Turkish speakers...

Jan-12-10  muratski: Well one day everybody on earth's gonna speak Turkish anyways!This is all in order to help them out in the future:)
Nov-18-10  chewing: thats great!! well done emre.birçok kez canlý olarak maçlarýný izlemiþtim gerçekten harika bir oyuncu

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Remarkable game; just when one thinks that the Classic Bishop Sacrifice has been thoroughly explored, along comes an idea like 23.f4.
Jan-11-11  rilkefan: 33.b4 was pretty surprising to me.
Jan-11-11  erimiro1: The spirit of early 20th. century is not dead, and Can shows us a remarkable lesson of attacking chess. The priniple of 18. B:h7+! is well known but in that case the combination is far from being obvious, and mate is not near (although the threats are there). Can had to calculate a lot, and I won't be surprised to know that healthy intuition was involved too. 20.Rd6! is not easy to find at all. Most players would continue 20.Qh4 just to find out that they entered a dead end street. All moves later including the poisoned pawn e5 and rook d6, plus the way Can chased the black king, complete a true classic game. YES, HE CAN!
Jan-11-11  goodevans: Could any of the French Defence proponents out there tell me at what point would you normally stop worrying about your opponent playing Bxh7+?
Jan-11-11  jimx: I've never seen a king defend his queen's rook so well before. Or maybe he just rushed over there in person to wake the rook up, since it seems to have slept through the alarm clock for the battle, and even the death of the black queen. Or maybe it just needed a refill of fuel, or children's souls, or whatever it is that black rooks run on. What the hell are rooks anyway? Based on the way they move, they seem to be supercharged V8 siege towers, without any steering or brakes.
Jan-11-11  onur87: Bütün kardeþlerime selamlar :). Yes, We CAN! Çünkü biz Türküz! :)

  kevin86: Black's 27th move was a sad necessidy since the mating net was about to swallow the king. The ending is Child's Play (without Chucky).

Interesting alternative. I take it the point is that after business as usual with 22.♕h7+ ♔f8 23.♕h8+ ♔e7 24.♕xg7, Black can defend with 24...Qxe5, attacking White's ♕ while making ...♔xd6 playable.

At first I thought 22.♕h7+ ♔f8 23.f4 would be reasonable, but Black has 23...♘xe5 23.fxe5 ♕xe5 in response.

Any takers?

Jan-11-11  atakantmac: Þu an cok þaþýrdým sitede bu kadar türk olduðuna:D unutmayalým bari birbirimizi.

It's a very good attacking game from a 'Turkish' player against +2600.Congrats Emre Can!

Jan-11-11  WhiteRook48: this is a very nice white attack
Jan-11-11  AGOJ: Great effort by white in this game, staring down (or up) 200 rating points. The pun works a treat in English, but I am curious: how do you pronounce the name Can in Turkish?
Jan-11-11  Erdem Yildiz: Tüm Türk arkadaþlara selamlar.
to AGOJ: Can pronounces in Turkish John.
the game is a good example for the "chase the king!"
Jan-11-11  cruelite: bu kadar turk gormek burda guzelmis. yuru be emre can, basarilarinin devamini dilerim.
Jan-11-11  Ranjan: খুব সুন্দর খেলা
Jan-14-11  gmalino: <jimx> THX, you saved my day! Nice and precise description and so funny over all!
Feb-26-16  Virgil A: Jahn,E be good
