  wordfunph: "Your moves a3 and h3 had him terrified!"

- GM Viktor Korchnoi (to GM Yasser Seirawan)

Aug-22-13  Everett: Seirawan's 23.Ba6 looks at first to be a rudimentary exchange of bad bishop for good bishop. Yet he switches gears immediately with 24.Qxd7, and tries to stuff Black's bishop pair with pawns and knights. His knight pair proves much more effective.

Pretty impressive crush of a player that usually got the best of Seirawan.

  chancho: It took Yasser 10 looong years to get his first win against Andersson.

(according to the database)

Yasser was probably happy.
