Dec-18-04  BadTemper: Awesome sacrifice on 13. c4 to set up a two-move double attack with pin and royal fork!
May-03-05  schnarre: Very nice finish!
Dec-19-05  MarkN: this could make a sweet puzzle
Dec-19-05  notsodeepthought: At the end black was so tangled up that white could have even won another way (16 Ba3).
Jan-13-06  schnarre: True enough!
Feb-24-06  KholdStare: 16. Ba3 c5

Although it doesn't matter because White could still do Ng6+

Oct-14-06  semislav: <KholdStare> White could also have down Qxa8
Apr-17-07  Thrajin: This game is definitely not worth skipping...
Jan-04-09  WhiteRook48: skip this game all up. Joking
what a knight fork!!
Feb-27-09  WhiteRook48: Skipping is totally worth it.
Apr-10-09  WhiteRook48: 13...Bxc4??
Jul-09-12  e4 resigns: Wow, Chigorin gives up a knight for a queen?
