  benveniste: This is one of the wildest games I've seen in a long time! At the end, black sac's a Rook in order to get a second queen, and it still all ends in tears (and mate in 3).
Apr-11-12  Everett: What a great game. Black was so resourceful in defense, but White made the early pawn grab hurt in the end.

What a phenomenal game! His style in this game is like a synthesis of both Kramnik's and Shirov's.
