|Dec-28-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: That's a joke, right?
White had at least four different moves on his 28th turn, (a4, Qd1, Na4, and Rd1) that probably won the game for him. Certainly Rd1 was NOT the losing move!!!
I suggest that you see Keene's book for more details. I have also been considering analyzing this game for my website, it is one of Stein's best and is also UNBELIEVABLY COMPLICATED!!!!!

It IS complicated. Where is the white win after 28.a4 g5 or 28.Qd1 g5 For example:
28.a4 g5 29.e5 Qxe5 30.Bd1 (30.fxg4 Qxe2+; 30.Rh6 Bxd5 31.Nxd5 Qxd5 32.Rg6+ Rg7 33.Rxg7+ Kxg7 34.Bc3+ Nf6) ...Qd4 31.Nc7 Bc4 32.Ne4 gxf3+ 33.Bxf3 g4 34.Bc3 gxf3+ 35.Kh2 Ng5 36.Qh4 (36.Bxd4 Rh7+ , 36.Nxg5 Qd3 ) ...Qxc3 37.Nxc3 Rh7
28.Qd1 g5 29.fxg4 f3+ 30.Bxf3 Bxg4 (or Rxf3) 31.Bxg4 =
28.Qd1 g5 29.Rf1 gxf3+ (Qh6) 30.Rxf3 Bg4 31.Rd3 f3+ 32.Bxf3 Bxf3+ 33.Rxf3 Rxf3 34.Qxf3 Rxf3 35.Kxf3 g4+
|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.|
