Jan-06-05  Jaymthegenius: Nh3??? 5.exf5 would be much better.
Jan-06-05  Brian Watson: white won, genius.

5.Nh3! heads to d5 and prevents ..Qg5

Apr-10-08  Knight13: <Jaymthegenius: Nh3??? 5.exf5 would be much better.> If you're talking about Black trading a side-pawn with white's central pawn making that move bad then I understand you. But 5. Nh3 is better.

  samsloan: This is one of the worst games that I have ever seen.

I do not understand how this can be regarded as a world championship game.

Feb-05-12  Knight13: 20... Nxd3 is probably better.

<samsloan> I understand. Especially White's moves from 26 to 32. Then there's 38... Be4? among others (11... Bf6, etc.).

Apr-23-16  EssChess: 20...Nb3 creates a triple fork on queen, rook and bishop..

44... Nxh6 should have been played
