Aug-14-17  Saniyat24: Oh man what a game...what a move 13. Kg2...hiding his King behind the safety of black pawns, and guarding with bishops and knight...Burns attacks dazzlingly on the Queen-side, and black king has no place to hide... "Thrashed & Burned."
Feb-21-18  schnarre: ...Love how Burn brought out his attack on the Queenside.

  Sally Simpson: Tarrasch calls the latter part his play in this game as 'pathetic.'

He suggests 34...Rh8 with the idea of pushing the h-pawn.

it certainly looks a lot better than the 34...Qb6 35....Qg6 idea.
