  kevin86: Battering ram of pawns costs black a piece and pawn for two pawns,leaving him a hopeless cause. Strange,white's aces in the whole-the three kingside pawns are as yet unmoved-while the pawns that sowed the victory were so far advanced!
Dec-21-03  Catfriend: Very cute. I liked the 21-24 moves, when white ruined black's centre. An examplary game!
Dec-21-03  euripides: It's a very interesting and as far as I can see rare handing of the back side of the French. After 11...Na5 Black might be OK.

  jaime gallegos: I read recently in that "Liviu-Dieter is one of the most imaginative and creative modern players, some of his games can be compared with Tal's greatest achievements" On looking this game I agree with the author of the note ( GM Dorian Rogozenko ) .
Mar-26-04  MoonlitKnight: 21.Be4 looks a lot like 14...Bd6 from Kasparov vs X3D Fritz, 2003 only there was a reason behind this one.
Mar-26-04  Tigran Petrosian: <jaime gallegos>I could not find that chessbase article. could you post that link please.
Jun-24-04  PinkPanther: This rating must be wrong for Nisipeanu, only 2592? I think he's about 100 points higher than that in actuality.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Today yes, on the Jan 03 list no. This game was played in February 2003 and his rating was 2592 as shown.

Jun-24-04  PinkPanther: Then that's quite impressive to go up 100 points in about a year and a half, something which is very hard for players of that level to accomplish.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Impressive indeed, which made me wonder why he was (and still is) so unknown when I first heard about him not too long ago. Think it was in Dubai.
Jan-14-05  LIFE Master AJ: A very good game!!

A student asked me why not take on e4 on move 21 for Black. This loses quaintly, for example: 21...dxe4?; 22.Qxc4+ Nc6; 23.d5 exd5; 24.Nxd5+ Kb8; 25.Qxc6 Ra5; 26.Rfb1 Rxb5; 27.Qxb5, '' (Maybe " ").

I hope this answers your question!

Jun-30-05  mymt: hes a real "no retreat-no surrender" type of player.Look at 10. ...g4 11.b5 Nxd4 now not 12.Nxd4 but 12.cxd4 allowing Black to open the g file to his King.How can he be so sure he can withstand any attacks down that file? Orwas it just to break up the g & h pawn advance?
Nov-20-14  Moszkowski012273: Knight totally had to stay on d7
Jun-30-15  Bruce Graham: Bravo! Planning plus channeling Planinc.
