Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-21-06  Brown: 13...Bxd2+ seems premature. 13...Rhe8 is one idea.
Apr-04-06  TylerD: I find this game enteratining. There is a certain intensity to it that I like.
Aug-24-14  Mating Net: I love Moro's 3.Nf3 instead of the typical 3.Nc3 to combat the Scandinavian. The White c&d pawns advance with tempo and give White a better game than the main lines with Nc3 IMHO.

  fredthebear: Black sends the White king on a short stroll. The sacrifice 16...Nxc4 doesn't work in the end.
Sep-09-15  FairyPromotion: I remember Ian Rodgers mentioned this game during Tal Memorial 2012. He said that he tried the Scandinavian to catch Moro off guard, but lost fairly quickly. To his surprise Morozevich revealed in the post mortem that he was working on the Scandinavian for the last 6 months, trying to refute it altogether. According to him Morozevich had found how to gain advantage in most lines, but showed an "extremely beautiful line with a wild queen sac" that he wasn't able to crack. I would have loved to see the line that he was talking about.
