  Sneaky: White's three far-advanced, connected, passed pawns look mighty dangerous. There would be no justice in chess if they did not go on to win!
Jun-28-02  bishop: The white defensive setup on the queenside with the bishop coming back to c1 after the queen's rook had swung over was elegant. A really superb game.

  Phony Benoni: <Jason Frost> After the immediate 29...Bg7 30.Qf3, Black cannot effectively cover the deadly check on h5. 29...e5 30.dxe6+ Bg7 allowed Black's queen to help out--though the cure was nearly as bad as the disease.
Jan-19-09  Phantom.Nightmare: Black attacks too slow, should've attacked more immediately. 12..Qb8 is very slow, since he played 16..Qb7 later. It's better to play 12..Ne8 with the same aim of controling the e5 square and also plans Ne8-c7-b6. The queen belongs in the b6 or a5 square.
Jan-19-09  Lt.Surena: 28.Bxh6!! Devastating pawn formation by white. Alburt, obviously no match for Kuzmin's tactical prowess.
