Sep-06-07  MadBishop: I just love sacrificing a pawn on g4 in a position like this! It's like 'You know its bad, but whether you take it or not, you can kiss your Kingside goodbye!' And then on top of it Korchnoi offers an irresistable fork and Black falls for it. With his second rank indefensible, he has no chance, being a rook down after Qh7+ Kf8, Qh8+!
Nov-01-10  Sem: What's wrong with Nxf4 on the 26th move?

  Sastre: <26...Nxf4 27.Qe3 Qc7 (27...Nxh3 28.Qe7) 28.Rh4 Ne6 29.Nxd5> seems to be winning for White.
Nov-01-16  RookFile: I don't think the queen on a5 was helpful for black. It seemed to be out of play.
