|Apr-03-05|| ||Milo: I'm the first to comment on this well known game??
Black's attack down the h-file leads me to suspect that white might have done well to close things on the kingside with h6, although this might allow black some initiative on the other half of the board.
|Apr-03-05|| ||iron maiden: Very interesting finish. After 34. Be2, White's rook, knight and bishop will all be pinned to the king. |
|Sep-11-05|| ||chess man: 26...Qh8!! was an outstanding move by Seirawan.|
|Feb-06-06|| ||JohnBoy: More than that, <iron maiden>. After 34.Be2, Rxf1+ wins outright.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||MorphyMatt: 14... d7!! is great.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||mack: See Mondo's column today (06/06/06) for a fairly decent look this game. ...Kd7 is lovely.|
|Jul-07-06|| ||notyetagm: The White king is a virtual pin cushion after 34 e2:|

|Jul-07-06|| ||notyetagm: Three -full- pins in the final position if White had played 34 e2.|
|Jul-19-06|| ||Zabooti: In his new book on combinations, Seirawan suggests that White's essential mistake is the unnecessary trade in move 9.|
|Sep-21-06|| ||clampolo: I think this is hilarious. White goes all out for a pawn storm and the black king just packs his bags and strolls over to the queenside.|
|Jan-13-07|| ||Octavia: It starts with the wrong move order: 1e4 d6 2 d4 Nf6 - it comes to the same in the end, but it would confuse a MacDonald pupil who's studying his "The art of logical thinking",p111|
Seirawan played this game 26 years ago & today, 13.1.7 he's commenting on this event live on the fritz server. Larry Christiansen also played there 31 years ago & recommends us all to go there & take part at least once in a life time - great event for all!
|Aug-24-07|| ||exchangesacrifice: Funny that Fritz recommends 15.Kd2 after Seirawan's 14... Kd7!, but there is logic - so White doesn't have to concede the h-file.|
|Nov-15-07|| ||OhioChessFan: Amazing. Kd7 is a stunner.|
|Nov-03-08|| ||sergeidave: The order of the first 4 moves differ from the ones on McDonald's book (Game 14). Either McDonald messed up with the order of the moves, or the fellow who uploaded this PGN messed up. Anyway, the games seems to continue correctly starting with 5.g4.|
|Jan-10-09|| ||LaFreaK: 34.Be2 Bg4
35.Rd2 the king is 6 feet under
36.Kxf1 Qh1 mate
|Jan-10-09|| ||LaFreaK: Also after 34.Be2
Black wins the Knight
by 34...Rxf1 and it cannot recapture because of mate at h1
and Black wins again the Rook at f2,and soon will win again the bishop at e2.
What an onslaught.
|Jan-10-09|| ||pacorrum: A fantastic conception by Seirawan from the very beginning!|
|May-25-09|| ||Lutwidge: ...Kd7 was a shogi-like move. :)|
|May-28-11|| ||atarw: Just out of curiousity, if you use the Pirc, (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6) What if your opponent uses (3.e5) I know some OK responses, but can anyone tell me a really good one, and why?|

After 3.e5, 3....dxe5 4.dxe5 Qxd1+ 5.Kxg1 Ng4 wins a pawn, plus deprives White of the right to castle.
|May-07-12|| ||MarkFinan: Opening up the h-file backfires badly on White, and putting all those pawns on light squares renders his LSB totally useless.|
