|Apr-25-07|| ||BlueMooner: A very enjoyable game - particularly as it allowed me to achieve an over par score! Petrov's attack was unstoppable following White's feeble Ng5 (two piece attacks rarely hurt anything but your own development) & Petrov punished his opponent in fantastic style utilising all his army but his a8-rook in slaying the white monarch. Excellent, attacking chess.|
|Mar-17-08|| ||just a kid: Dang,I could never do what Petrov did.Great Game!|
|Sep-05-08|| ||dwavechess: Both player in this game agrees with Rybka 2.3.2 14 ply a lot, Petroff 75% moves.|
|Sep-05-08|| ||kellmano: Black's 12th is an absolutely brilliant move. I'd give it !!!|
|Sep-11-08|| ||dwavechess: Still climbs to 80%! concur of Petroff moves with Rybka 3 w32 at 3 minutes per move.|
|Sep-12-08|| ||dwavechess: For hoffman decrease from 70% using R2 to 60% using R3.|
|Oct-29-08|| ||just a kid: 25 on GTM.Not too bad for me.|
|Jan-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Hoffman probably screamed at Petrov and left in a Hoff. :)|
|Apr-08-09|| ||WhiteRook48: brilliant game!!|
|May-12-09|| ||tommy boy: One of the greatest games!!!|
|Oct-27-09|| ||SirChrislov: Comment from Lawrence, Apr-05-04:
<surprisingly, Junior 8 says that 9.Kg3 is stronger than 9.Ke2 or 9.Kf1.>
man, that knocked my socks off. I thought 9.Kg3 was wht's game costing blunder and 9.Ke2 was the better try.
I wonder what today's Rybka or Fritz think of this.

You mean Black has mate in 15 moves? Is it a typo or something else is purported to have been said.
In the game score Black mates on the 20th move. The suggested line takes the mate to his 27th. I do not see the point of the comment? Please help.
|Sep-27-11|| ||mountm: It is a pointless comment...although so is my response, to a 10-month old comment referring to a comment 4 months prior.|
|Nov-01-11|| ||knighterrant999: That was just fun.|
|Dec-20-11|| ||master of defence: In a game of chess what have in my mobile phone, this game appears with the variation 17. g3 Nxd8+ 18. Kh4 Rf4+ 19. Kg5 Ne6+ 20. Kh5 g6+ 21. Kh6 Rh4+ 22. gxh4 Be3#. This game is the Chessmaster.|
|Jul-10-12|| ||Ghuzultyy: I had a hard time finding the correct moves in this one|
|Aug-30-12|| ||master of defence: 9.Ke1 was much better than 9.Kg3, stopping black´s attack.|
|Nov-12-12|| ||koleos: master of defense, You are right 9.Ke1 was the correct move. Maybe 9.Kf1 also.The move 9.Kg3 lost the game.|
|Nov-13-12|| ||GrahamClayton: One of the first examples in the database where a player castles with an enemy piece adjacent to the King. This can only happen with a knight.|
|Nov-13-12|| ||WannaBe: To be technical on 'adjacent', you can 0-0 with rook on d2. :-)) but you can't with a knight.|
|Nov-13-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Or either a bishop or knight on d1. To summarize (because I like to do silly things like this):|
Rook: d2 (0-0) or f2 (0-0-0)
Bishop: d1 (0-0) or f1 (0-0-0)
Knight: d1, f2 (0-0) or f1, d2 (0-0-0)
You can never castle with an enemy queen or pawn adjacent to the king. If the king is adjacent, you aren't playing chess. Ask <WannaBe> about that.
|Dec-25-13|| ||Petrosianic: According to Horowitz's "Golden Treasury of Chess", "the idea of readily surrendering the Queen in order to hound the hostile King with the lesser pieces, has been utilized fairly often, but Pettroff's sacrifice was one of the first, if not THE first example of this appealing combinative theme."
So, is it the first? Can anyone find an older game that does the same?|
|Dec-25-13|| ||DoctorD: What precisely was the "combinative theme"? Castling after 12. Nxf7? Or earlier, when Black played Nxf2 to draw out the white king?|
|Dec-25-13|| ||Petrosianic: The combinative theme was the Queen sac with 12... O-O, and the whole idea that the harassment of the trapped King would be worth the material loss. It's possible that Petroff calculated it all the way to mate, but I guess Horowitz was thinking that he didn't, just saw that Black was better.|
