|May-12-04|| ||Stormerne: After White's 15th move (Nd4), Otto Borik comments that the game is equal. Black should have played 15...g6! depriving the White knight of f5. |
|Apr-09-06|| ||notyetagm: The position after 22 ♖f6 is a magnificent example of the positional idea of <using your isolated pawns to create outposts for your pieces>.|

White has three pieces in the middle of the board (d4-bishop, d5-knight, and f6-rook) and every one of them is defended by an isolated pawn.
Though weak in the endgame when they must be defended by pieces, in the middlegame isolated pawns give you open lines, create outposts for your pieces, and deny access of the enemy's pieces to critical squares (the d4-, d5-, d6- and f5-squares here).
|Aug-11-08|| ||notyetagm: Keres-Gilg Prague 1937, Keres' 25th move
-- Keres' Best Games of Chess 1931-1940 (1941), where Reinfeld wrote of Keres' 25th move in Keres-Gilg, Prague 1937,
"This masterly Zwischenzug is the finest move in the whole game, and forces the game into channels evidently unforeseen by Black." (Reinfeld 1941:108)
|Feb-22-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this was a totally messed up game for Gilg|
