Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-08-04  AdrianP: This game is a cracker. Golubev sacrifices piece after piece. Aagard analyses it in detail in his Attacking Chess CD.

  KingG: Yes, fantastic game. Golubev just sacrifices piece after piece.

15.Rf3!! is a really nice move, opening up the g-file, and removing the blockade of the e-pawn, freeing the light-squared bishop(incidentally, if Black tries to maintain the blockade with 16...e5, then 17.Rg1! Kh8 18.Rxg7! is winning).

Jul-29-08  Autoreparaturwerkbau: No doubt last 3 moves seem well worthwhile a puzzle. But above that ... that's some chess there!
Aug-05-12  shakman: Fantastic game!
