  jaime gallegos: wow checkmate in next black movement! 46. Kxf3 Rf2++ or 46. Kf1 Rf2++
Jul-17-03  Elrathia Kingi: Interesting to note the domination of the center that black has after 13...dxe5. White has no space, and he can't initiate an attack.

  Honza Cervenka: 43.Kh2 is a blunder. After 43.Kh3 black has to repeat the moves as 43...Nf3 fails after 44.Ne4. There is no mate as the Knight protects the field f2 and 44...fxe4 leaves an exit for white King via g4.
Jul-21-03  jmcd2002: <Honza: 43.Kh2 is a blunder. After 43.Kh3 black has to repeat the moves...> It's hard to blame white for trying to continue the game rather than force a draw, since the a-pawn is so close to promotion. Still, a draw is not a loss...

  Chessical: Persson was lucky to survive the opening after he allowed e6(!). DeFirmian could have played: <12.Nxb5!!> (axb5 13.Bxb5) with a very significant advantage.

  IMlday: 12.Nxb5 axb5 13.Bxb5 Bc6 14.Qc4 Bb5 15.Qf7+ Kd8 16.Qxg7 Qc6 looks like a scary counterattack. 20.Bxd5?!~~draw by rep with 20.Bb5 Bc6 21.Bc4 looks appropriate. Chess for Tigers!! :-)
Nov-04-08  Xeroxx: Or if: (12. Nxb5 axb5 13. Bxb5 Bc6) 14. Bc4

...Nh6 15. O-O Bf6 16. Ne6 Ng4 17. Re1 Qa7

Mar-28-11  dbquintillion: If this hasn't already happened, someone should create a game collection called "Should have taken the perpetual."
Mar-31-11  Shams: <dbquintillion> Great idea!
