|Oct-15-04|| ||Apocalypse79: He knew that two knights could destroy opponent's defence line..His games are difficult to foresee. Anyway, good postion, Moro.. ! |
|Jun-13-05|| ||AlfieNoakes: Simply Devastating. This guy is awesome!
|Jun-13-05|| ||Kangaroo: Well, looking at the game (without knowing what other visitors wrote) I expected the sacrifice on f5. |
All I could not have realized is HOW could Morozevich get this done, since there were so many black knights defending the pawn. He DIT IT!
|Jun-13-05|| ||maoam: I remember watching this game live and came up with the following line|
14...Bxb2 15.Ng5!? Re8 16.Nxh7!
and now if 16...Bxa1?
17.Rxa1 Bxd5 18.Bf4! (vacating g5 for the knight) Nc6 (Black must prevent Be5) 19.Qh7+ Kf6 20.Nxf7!! Bxf7 21.Qh6+ Ke6 (21...Kg8?? 22.Bxg6 Bxg6 23.Qxg6+ Kh8 24.Re1 and mate follows) 22.Qh4+ Ke6 23.Qg4+ Nf5 24.Bxf5+ gxf5 25.Re1+ Kd5 26.Qxf5+ e5 27.Bg5 Re7 28.Rd1+ Kc5 29.Be3+ Nd4 (29...Kb4?? 30.Qc2!) 30.Bxd4+
But Black has a much stronger move 16...Qa5!
17.Rad1! [the greedy 17...Qxa3?? is refuted by 18.Bf4 Qc3! (Black must defend h8, other moves lose to Bxg6) 19.Be5 Qxe5 20.Rxe5 Bxe5 21.Ng5 and Black is defenseless] Qc3! 18.Bf4 Qh8
|Apr-04-06|| ||TylerD: A fantastic game which brings Aljechin to my mind. The resolut áttack against the enemy king brings out an echo of chess´ past and glorious days!|
|May-02-06|| ||laterways: 16. ...Nac8. ...b4 is sharper, but who wouldn't get intimidated by his lively play?|
|Jul-08-06|| ||jackmandoo: Yea too bad the end is not even checkmate, looks like both players missed that the black king can go to H8. Looks like most everybody missed it. Yea I guess that's why I have a 78% win rating on yahoo.|
|Jul-09-06|| ||s4life: 35 ... Kh8, 36. Rf8#.|

An immediate 35... Kh8 loses immediately to 36. Rf8#, as <s4life> pointed out. 35... Rg7 also loses to 36. Qe8#.
|Jul-09-06|| ||jackmandoo: Speak to my hand because my 78% win rating on yahoo doesent understand|
|Jul-10-06|| ||s4life: yahoo doesn't count ;)|
|Apr-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: crashing a lesser master|
|Apr-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: McShame?|
|Nov-20-17|| ||plang: The gambit 6 d4!? is a sideline; 6 Re1, 6 e5 and 6 Qe2 are more frequently played. 10..Ne5 had been played in a few games; 10..Na7 was new but it has not been repeated as the knight appears poorly placed on a7. Morozovich was clearly not worried about 14..Bxb2 ; one line he offered was 15 Ng5..Re8 16 Nc2. 24..e6?! set a trap but created pawn weaknesses for Black. McShane was hoping for 25 dxe..dxe 26 Nxe6+..Rxe6 27 Qxe6..Re7 28 Rxd6..Rxe5 29 Rxe6..Bc8 30 Rc6 with unclear play but after Morozovich's 25 f5! the White attack was too strong.|
