Dec-29-16  CountryGirl: Quite an achievement, beating Volkov in the classical French...
Jan-01-17  paavoh: Yes, truly a fine result over the two-time winner of the Rilton Cup.
Jan-11-17  Junbalansag: <Superb ending, beating a supergrandmaster. Congrats, Prince!>
Mar-28-17  pawndude88: Black played passively early on while white stormed forward full throttle.

In belated vengeance for the French Revolution, the Prince beats the Volk off.

Couldn't black set up an inescapable mating net with 22...Qxa2 and Bb5? The Q sacrifice looks interesting with 22...Qxa2 23. Qxg7+ Kxg7 24. Rdg1 Kh3? 25. Ng8# or 24...Kh8? 25. Rg8# but I don't see the mate after 24...Kxf7
