  moronovich: <The crucialitiness of it is insurmountable, its brilliance is unassuaged. Therefore, two thumbs up!>

Yeah,2 thums up! And pants down ;)

Wish they would play the KIDīs more frequently.

Nov-26-16  Saniyat24: Black may have given the move 37...Kh8 according to www.ajschess.com/lifemasteraj/best_games.html
Mar-04-17  The Kings Domain: Probably Yusupov's best achievement. Toppling a young Ivanchuk in his prime with masterly play was quite the feat.

Ah yes! <A young Ivanchuk in his prime>!

I remember those days very well. Ivanchuk used to walk around tournament halls wearing a big pink rosette emblazoned with these words:

<UKRAINIAN GRANDMASTER
GUARANTEED
99 44/100% PRIME!>

The rosette was stapled to his butt-arks. Ouch!

Apr-05-17  Conrad93: Ivanchuk wasn't in his prime. His best chess was played in the late 2000's.

  saffuna: < Ivanchuk wasn't in his prime. His best chess was played in the late 2000's.>

Really? At the time of this match he was 22, ranked 2nd in the world, had won Linares (including a victory over Kasparov), had defeated his earlier round opponent (Yudasin?) 4.5-0.5, and was generally considered to be the biggest threat to Kasparov.

Apr-11-17  Conrad93: He was rated No. 2 in the world in 2007 as well. That was when he reached his peak rating of 2787. He has improved since then.

  saffuna: You're right. I had not realized that.

  saffuna: Remember it was more or less a rapid game, under tremendous pressure, and the coup in Moscow was going on at the same time.

  saffuna: I'm saying it was difficult to play their best. They both said that afterward, as did the other USSR players in Brussels (Gelfand and Karpov).
Jul-11-17  Saniyat24: The Black King should be on g8 and not on h8 in the penultimate stage...here is a complete analysis of the game by GM Yasser Seirawan...

  ChessHigherCat: On move 21, we see a splendid example of "Yusupov's Gun" with Bishop-Knight-Queen-Knight perfectly aligned on the g file preparing to give a dose of Cancer in Uranus.

Not to Saturn, or one of the other planets?

  malt: Nice move 32.Nf2! and 33.Nh3
Jan-03-18  saintdufus: Yusupov's 28...Rg6!! reminds me of Spassky's 16th move in Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960, 16.Nf7!!, letting the opponent take a whole rook *with check*.

  perfidious: <bkpov: Why not 30. Nc-e7? Someone please help!>

The game continuation was forced, as 30.Nce7 loses to the clearance idea 30....Qh1+ 31.Bxh1 Nh2+ and mate next move.

Oct-05-18  LieutenantZipp: The kitchen sink, I tell you!

30. Nce7 Qh1+ 31. Bxh1 Nh2 mate

Sorry, still not mate. 32. Ke1 Rg1 is mate.

Oct-10-18  Inocencio: Both players are warriors. They entertain spectators.
