Jun-20-03  Larsker: Funny game. Thanks for the ride. (I often place something over the scoreboard to conceal it. Makes the game more entertaining for me.)
Jun-20-03  Jonber: 22...Qxe8 23.fxe8Q Rxe8 24.Nxd7 Kc6 25.Nb6 Rxe3 26.fxe3 Kxb6 was Black's last chance to stay fighting. Not much of chance though...

  morfishine: Excellent, exciting game! I couldn't find improvements for Black OTB after checking a few critical positions, but suspect an engine would find something, somewhere. Very entertaining with numerous positions throughout for those wishing to study
Aug-14-16  TheTamale: This game does not speak well to the efficacy of the Sicilian Defense.
Aug-14-16  catlover: <morfishine> Agreed. Definitely NOT a crummy game.
Aug-14-16  RandomVisitor: After 14.gxf7+ note that 14...Kxf7 fails due to 15.Qf3+ and forking the black rook on h1.
