Nov-24-04  morphy234: It would be funny if white sacrificed his second rook just for fun! 25. Rg1+ followed by Rg8+.
May-04-05  schnarre: Love the finish!!
May-12-05  halcyonteam: Nice finish, not hard to guess the finishing repetoire!
Oct-19-05  lopium: Yes, nice sacrifice.
Jan-13-06  schnarre: Adds insult to injury!
Sep-15-06  micartouse: The combination beginning with 22. Qxh6! is similar to Janowski vs Samisch, 1925, with the bishops on the same diagonals, a queen sac on h6, and a rook on the g-file. Very nice! <It would be funny if white sacrificed his second rook just for fun!> No, Black could block the second rook with the queen!
Dec-07-08  thebribri8: This is a good Christmastime game; all the Rudolf's.
Apr-25-09  WhiteRook48: Oh, deer.
Sep-10-10  sevenseaman: Q sacs for a swift win make for a lot of glamor on the chess board but this one is reborn in a matter of two moves. Very pretty!
Apr-30-14  Mating Net: As my man <patzer2> stated a long time ago, <Black is busted after 20. g4!> This is the kind of move that I could never even consider playing until I cracked 1500. I would have lunged in with an unsound sacrifice. Instead, 20.g4! dislodges the Knight, when it reaches g5, and enables White to open the g file.
Dec-04-14  sls: Wonderful!

  offramp: There's an English opening and a French and a Spanish ... how did the Germans miss out?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Well, <offramp>, at least Berlin didn't miss out. Nonetheless, given their 19th Century dominance, you do raise a good question!
Feb-08-15  shivasuri4: <offramp>, how about the Berlin Defence, one of the more popular openings (variations?) played today?

  daveinsatiable: <al wazir> sadly not: 21. Qxe7 1-0
Feb-08-15  Smite: crude, and totally unacceptable!
Feb-08-15  shivasuri4: <daveinstable>, 21.Qxe7 Nxe7 only serves to defuse the attack.

<al wazir>, what would Black reply to 20...Nd5 21.g5? I see nothing satisfactory.

  daveinsatiable: <shivasuri> Thanks for the correction. I should have known that the error would be mine, not the ever reliable <al wazir>'s.
Feb-08-15  shivasuri4: Sorry, I misread your name. Satiable and stable are not even close.
Feb-08-15  psmith: <patzer2> <drukenknight> 12 years later... an older version of Rybka recommends 20...Bf3 21. g5 Ng4 22. Bf6! as winning for White...

  al wazir: <shivasuri4: what would Black reply to 20...Nd5 21.g5? I see nothing>.

21..Kf8, maybe? I admit it doesn't look good for black. But if 22. gxh6, then 22...Qxh5, and now the ♙ has a hard time promoting. (If 23. hxg7, then 23...Kg8. If 23. Bxf7+ or 23. Rxg7, then 23...Ke8.)

<daveinsatiable: ... ever reliable ...>? You must be confusing me with someone else.

Feb-13-15  shivasuri4: 20...Nd5 21.g5 Kf8 falls to 22.Bxg7+, when the Bishop is taboo (since 22...Kxg7 loses immediately to 23.Qh6+ Kg8 24.Bh7+ with mate to follow). After 22...Ke8 23.Qxh6, Black might as well save himself some trouble by resigning immediately.
