Dec-07-04  Whitehat1963: Exchange festival in the opening of the day. Very interesting exchange of queens.
Dec-08-06  joelsontang: i think 21.Qxd4 Nxd4 22.Rc7 would have given white an advantage. what do all of u think?
Dec-08-06  Cyphelium: <joelsontang> I think 21. ♕xd4 ♘xd4 22. ♖c7 ♘e6 23. ♖xe7 ♘xf4 24. ♖xb7 ♖fd8 gives black enough play for the pawn to draw.
Mar-06-10  DoneMac: after 22.Rc7 b6 would be an easier way for Black to secure even chances (or 22...e6!? if Black I just wouldn't like the possibility of White creating an outside passer - especially given the White-square Bishop - however, given the Knight on f4, Black should secure enough opportunities to draw but a slight mistake would cost a piece) 23. Rxe7 Ne2+ 24. Kf2 Nxf4 25. Rd1 with idea of Rd7 & Rd6 might yield a slight edge to White but again the Black Knight on f4 is well placed
Mar-06-10  rapidcitychess: The way Kasparov plays the 4 pawns Reminds me about the pterodactyl variation of the Rat. <1d4 d62 c4 g6 3Nc3 Nf6 4e4 c5 5 Nf3 Qa5>
