|Jan-03-07|| ||Robert James: I also like the beauty of this game.
17...d5 is great.
|Apr-06-07|| ||M.D. Wilson: Stein was great.|
|Nov-29-08|| ||Xeroxx: He was.|
|Dec-31-08|| ||computer chess guy: Rybka prefers 33. ♗e1 ♗xg4 34. ♗g3: I'm not sure this holds for White, but it looks like a reasonable try.|
|Aug-11-10|| ||sevenseaman: ..30. Qxe2 is a well-spotted quick kill. No way White can recover hereafter.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||ToTheDeath: Good game but a bit swindle-ish. A nice example of saving a busted position with active play.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||rilkefan: I was a bit surprised not to see 14...b6. Black follows with a6 (or if 15.b5 a5, though white takes e.p. anyway) and with Ne8 and Bf8 in reserve it looks to me like he holds the c pawn while white's pieces are cut off from the kside.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||whiteshark: <Insane in the Ukraine> I can't remember where I've gotten this phrase.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||erniecohen: (1) <computer chess guy> Yes, 33.♗e1 seems to hold.|
(2) <sevenseaman> Sorry, <30...Qxe2> is not a kill. It's a draw after 31. ♘xe2 ♗xd5+ 32. ♔f1 ♗xh1 33. ♗b4 f3 34. ♗xc5 f3xe2+ 35. ♔xe2 ♖e8+ 36. ♔d3 ♗xd1 37. ♕xd1 ♖d8+ 38. ♗d4 ♖f4 39. ♕b3+ ♔f8 40. ♕a3+ ♔e8 41. ♕xa7
(3) Not only did Krogius miss several opportunities to win (as <Bionic Brain> correctly points out), but Stein also missed a draw with 25...gxf3+ 26. ♖xf3 ♕g4 27. ♕h1 ♘g5 28. ♖xf4 ♕h3+ 29. ♕xh3 ♗xh3+ 30. ♔h2 exf4 31. gxf4 ♗e6 32. ♖d1 ♗xd5 33. exd5.
|Oct-04-11|| ||HeMateMe: It's from a rap or hip-hop song, 1980s. Might be Public Enenmy, not sure. Check and see if Flavor Flav has a page here.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||ventricule: It's a pun with Cypress Hill's "insane in the membraine" : http://www.urbandictionary.com/defi...|
|Oct-04-11|| ||moodini: Cypress Hill did a song "Insane in the Membrane" as far as I remember and a bit more recent than the 80s. Maybe late 90s?|
|Oct-04-11|| ||HeMateMe: That phrase "insane in the membrane" was used in a popular rap song, much earlier than 2010. It's been used by more than one group.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||Honza Cervenka: What about 30.Rh6?|
|Oct-04-11|| ||Elrathia Kingi: I thought "insane in the membrane" was just a common saying.. At least, my mom said it all the time.|
Anyway, it aptly describes this game.
|Oct-04-11|| ||kevin86: I guess it turned out that black's three pieces proved stronger than white's three advanced pawns.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||Chessmensch: Meteor Shower.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||erniecohen: <Honza Cervenka: What about 30.Rh6?>
That might have won also, but much stronger is 30. ♗d3. (30. ...gxf3+ 31. ♔f1, or 30... ♕d6 31. ♖h6)|
|Oct-04-11|| ||scormus: A game of exquisite complexity. The way I like the KID|
|Jan-12-12|| ||Ithilius: Fantastic game and fantastic player :) I like his fresh, intuitive and tactical view over the chessboard :) (and coldblooded attack with unbalanced material in this game :)) Great respect!;)|
|Jul-08-12|| ||henjutsu: Actually, Ukraine comes without an article. Putting "the Ukraine" is not correct. =(|
|Dec-10-12|| ||Conrad93: This game was played during the U.S.S.R when Ukraine was just a state among states. |
The article is correct in this case.
For independent Ukraine it's not.
|Apr-29-13|| ||chesswar1000: 28. Na4! is the best instead of Rd1.|
|Oct-21-14|| ||hoodrobin: Stein was a strong tactician, but Krogius was not at the top IMO.|
|Nov-15-15|| ||mikealando: One of the 100 best chess games of all time featured in The mammoth book of the world's greatest chess games,1997 edition
(They're up to 125 in the latest edition )
