  refutor: say what you want about ponomariov being a paper champion, between games like this and Ponomariov vs Shirov, 2003, he definitely shows that he's not afraid to mix it up theoretically v. the big boys

  Sneaky: I've liked "Supermario" since last year when I first saw his games. I have a theory that he's been trained by playing computers from a young age, and as a result, he plays like a computer himself. (No offense intended!)
Dec-03-05  rjsolcruz: I also like Ponomariov and thought that he should have been seeded in San Luis since he only lost the title by default due to the boycott of the Tripoli WCh cycle. And like the 16th World Champion, I also essayed the Ruy Lopez in my games like in the Sol Cruz vs Nabos, Meralco vs LRT 1 Goodwill Match on Nov 18, 2005 in Pasig City. However, in this game, I went 12 Bxd5 and likewise halved the point.

  KingG: <rjsolcruz> No offence, but you don't have to tell us about your game on every Marshall game you comment on.
Aug-22-06  bernardchinshin: Why did not Anand follow the idea in the Smirin vs Grischuk game 2001 in which Black won. 18... Be6 19. Qe6 Kh8 20. Qd6 Rae8 followed by f4 and g4 for black.
Aug-22-06  Kingdom NL: Maybe 18..Be6 19. Qxe6+ Kh8 20. Bxg5 with a mate treath on f6.
Oct-04-06  positionalgenius: A highly sacraficial draw,great game.
