  Mating Net: This is a good game for the tactics archive. Black unleashes several devastating moves. My favorite has to be 26...Be2! with a skewer of Rook and Queen. 31...Rxg3+ isn't bad either as the White King is stripped of all protection.
Mar-08-05  percyblakeney: It could be worth noting that Muzychuk just had turned 11 years old when this game was played, but well done by Bosboom-Lanchava anyway.

Sep-06-19  RandomVisitor: White had 22.gxf3 and 24.Rf1 as improvements that would have cancelled black's attack

Sep-06-19  goodevans: <26...Be2> is a neat move. If <27.Rxd8 Bxb5 28.Rxf8+ Bxf8 29.axb5> then <29...Bc5+ 30.Kh1 Qe1> brings the house down.
Sep-06-19  Parachessus: <My favorite has to be 26...Be2! with a skewer of rook and queen.>

Actually, it's a pin, a relative pin to be precise.

Sep-06-19  RandomVisitor: After 18...cxd5 white can stop the attack with careful play

Sep-06-19  Andrew Chapman: Yes, I thought 19. was a key moment, and wondered about g3 as a way to develop the QB.
Sep-06-19  Kay Sadeeya: I kept waiting to see when black's dark square bishop was going to join in, it was in a perfect spot to drop the final blow. Only moved twice the entire game.
