|Jan-31-06|| ||Dudley: 25. Rc6 threatens mate in one with 26. Qa7 #, but 25....Rxc6 26.Qxc6 is an unstoppable mate with 27.Ra8#, since the king is confined to one square.|
|Feb-02-06|| ||MorphyMatt: amazing. Thanks.|
|Apr-05-06|| ||stanleys: Briliant game with many tactical shots
11.Nd5! 14.Bh6! 15.Bb5!! 18.Bg7! 20.Rd6!

|Apr-04-07|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: I imagine that the player with the white pieces was having a very enjoyable time during the course of this game. The player with the black pieces was probably experiencing less enjoyment.|
|Sep-27-08|| ||humangraymatter: A most brilliant game.It made me laugh.So did the comments!|
|Jan-15-10|| ||Phony Benoni: A powerful bludgeoning, even by Kupreichik's standards. What a match it would have been between him and Nezhmetdinov! Overall, I think Kupreichik at his peak was a bit better, even given his streakiness. However, Viktor would have played the type of game that would have stimulated Nezh to his greatest heights rather than bore him into mediocrity.|

|Mar-28-13|| ||tommy boy: Wow, een geweldig spel|
|Sep-08-15|| ||Alex Schindler: wow, just incredible. I feel like exclamming every single move. It's like Kupreichik made a bet before the game "wanna see me win a game with at least one piece en prise every move from midgame to mate?"|
|Sep-08-15|| ||cunctatorg: A game of fun and torture!!...
Both players, GM Viktor Kupreichik and Brazilian GM Jaime Sunye Neto were really strong and convincing Grandmasters; probably Sunye Neto was in a cheerful and naughty disposition that afternoon ... and even that very evening!!...
|Sep-08-15|| ||Alex Schindler: Seriously what should black have done after 11Nd5? The game was just a vicious onslaught from there...|
|Sep-09-15|| ||perfidious: <GSM: I imagine that the player with the white pieces was having a very enjoyable time during the course of this game. The player with the black pieces was probably experiencing less enjoyment.>|
While White's play gives the appearance of randomly dropping pieces onto squares where they may be captured, poor Sunye derived no pleasure that day.

Kupreichik really is a fantastic player.
|Apr-21-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Even if I had played the Sicilian, would have chosen something else vs. Kupreichik. One little surprise; 11.Nd5 first appears in the database in 1958! 12.Bc4 left theory behind, in the dust, one might say.|
|Apr-21-17|| ||FairyPromotion: One of my favorite Kupreichik games. Head-spinning tactics.|
|Apr-21-17|| ||Gottschalk: Viktor has aged and never ceased to be a "Brazilian killer".
In the game below he performs a fancy queen sacrifice against Herman Claudius.
Two years later, Viktor repeated the variant of his own and won again. This time without the Queen's sacrifice.
|Apr-21-17|| ||morfishine: Wow, I think he managed to put every piece en prise |
|Apr-21-17|| ||Timi: This game is like the famous Messi's and Maradona's goal where they dribbled everybody|
|Apr-21-17|| ||Retireborn: Kupreichik's notes in Informator indicate that Black should have played 13...Bb8 or 13...Be5 14.f4 Bb8 instead of 13...Bc5(?)|
After 13...Bb8 the tactic 14.Bh6 doesn't work because after 14...Nxd5 15.exd5 Qc7! Black has an unpleasant counter-threat, which is not obviated by 16.d6 Qc6.
In the game line 14...Nxd5 is useless of course.
|Apr-21-17|| ||TheTamale: Great GOTD. Nice, imaginative play by Kupreichik.|
|Apr-21-17|| ||sachman19: ruthless|
|Apr-21-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: Now THIS is a game of the day! Could easily be game of the week.|
|Apr-21-17|| ||morfishine: BTW: there were many places where Black could've improved|
