Sep-19-03  seoulmama: A beautiful game.
Sep-30-03  DexterGordon: The sacrifices e6 and Nd3 are really impressive!
Feb-25-04  refutor: 14.e6 was just a great move freeing up e5 for the knight...
Sep-30-04  clocked: Voted best game of the 6-month period. Sure, anyone could play 17.Nd2 with advantage, but it takes vision to conceive the plan c4-c5-Nd3!!

20...f4 21.Nxf4 Bf7 22.Nd3 Qa2 23.Nc3
20...Bc8 21.Nd2 b6 22.cxb6 Qxa3 23.bxc7+ Nxc7 24.Qb6

Sep-30-04  Kean: and after 14.e6 the white squares are took, the rook has to move and its possible c4, in fact all what follows starts with that great move. Svidler is such a talented player and i wonder if he didnt visualized everything at 10..Nf5
Feb-15-06  mulondabl: very impresive
Jul-23-18  SpiritedReposte: A really deep game where black thought he was robbing a rook in broad daylight.
