  Honza Cervenka: Quite interesting tactical encounter, in which poor Jan Smeets was beaten once again. White could have trapped black Queen by 15.Ne7+ Kc8 16.Bf3 with intention 17.Bg2 Qg4 18.f3. 24...Qxd5 was a miscalculation and 24...Bg6 was necessary.
Jan-28-10  Eyal: It seems that Tiviakov would have been very close to winning already with 15.Ne7+! Kb8 16.Bf3! with the combined threats of Qb3 as well as trapping the queen by Bg2. Btw, 14...Ne6? was the first new move - until that point they were following Judit Polgar vs Skembris, 1994, where 14...Ba4 was played.
Feb-14-11  Whitehat1963: Currently the longest game in the Guess-the-Move Hardest 40 Games. But only three plays, so far, so it's bound to move down the list. Still, it looks like a complicated and difficult-to-predict affair.
