Feb-18-03  kostich in time: This is one of the two Nimzozich-Rubinstein games that Soltis includes in The Hundred Greatest Games of the Twentieth Century..the advance of the fpawn, and the final"quiet"sac of the rook,are quite amazing.
Jul-31-05  Averageguy: A nice not so easy to find last move, also threatening a neat and rare mating pattern.
Jul-31-05  who: In retrospect 28...fxe6 was very regrettable. Fritz gives 28...Rxd1 29.exf7 Kxf7 30.Rxd1 Kg8 31.Qc4+ Kh7 Qf4 b5 32.c4 Qb7 33.Qg3 Qf7 34.axb5 cxb5 as leaving white about a pawn up.

  Calli: 27...Qc8 is also very passive. Qe7 is better.
Jul-31-05  who: As is 27...Rxd1
Jul-31-05  WMD: 32.Rd2 would have been cheeky.
Mar-02-14  LIFE Master AJ: A really brilliant game, #77 in Andy Soltis's book. ("The 100 Best")
