  fm avari viraf: A very lively game by Sandor Boros giving a good lesson to Szabo " The Art of Attack". It's very sad to know his untimely demise. May God Bless His Soul Peace In Heaven.

  Marmot PFL: I wqs thinking for the last 10 moves he would probably sacrifice that rook soon, so he sacrifices both.

  dabearsrock1010: a cracking game by white
Oct-07-07  pawnofdoom: Cool how white can play 23. ♗xf5 without worrying about 23. ... gxf5. Normally the g-pawn is pinned to the king when that happens, but this time, I think whtie has ♕h5! which leads to mate. And its also pretty impressive how white sacs two rooks for two pawns and then wins with just a queen and a bishop.
