Great Endgame play by Kotov!

Apr-10-07  coolchessguy123: great game, cool opening variation. I might try it sometime.
Sep-08-16  Toribio3: This is not an easy game. It requires care and patience in maneuvering, otherwise-it would have been drawn.
May-14-17  edubueno: 31 h4? es un error. Era mejor 31 a4!
Oct-19-18  edubueno: 21 Ad4!
Nov-04-18  brimarern: Masterful play by Black! The subtleties are as beautiful as (if not more than) any sacrificial attack.
