Mar-08-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: If anyone collects the greatest comebacks in chess history take black's seat after 39.Qxa6 and say - black to win. I wouldn't even dare. Hat off to Kamsky.

  aw1988: Holy god. What an effort by Kamsky.
Apr-29-05  allanon880: Yes I have to agree. Kamsky gave it a very good effort. Enjoyable game.

  WillC21: It's a fighting spirit like this that makes me have no respect for 20 move drawmasters like Kramnik.
Apr-29-05  maxxowar: of the most exciting ending I ever saw!
Apr-29-05  mrblondie: yes what a fight
Apr-29-05  Bigfatpatzer: It seems as if Shirazi refused to accept that Kamksy's rook-knight-pawn-king fortress was impenetrable and tried for a win. He should have just repeated moves or position. The illusion of a win when there isn't one is a recipe for zero points.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I can't see why white played 75 Qd7 instead of Qxd5+. At the very least, he can capture the rook at the next move and force a draw.
Jan-09-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Gregor> God knows, maybe he still saw a win somewhere? Weird...
