  Honza Cervenka: 38...Nb6 was a huge mistake in difficult position and (probably) time pressure. After that 39.Bd5 wins material. Black Rook cannot retreat as then the Knight on b6 is hanging and after 39...Nxd5 40.exd5 there is a double attack against the Rook c6 and the Queen. But Sliwa instead of simple taking of the exchange (which would be sufficient too) found more spectacular and shorter way to win with a nice sacrifice of Knight on f5.
Aug-09-05  paul dorion: 28...b5 was pretty bad too as well as 39...Nc4. Better seems 39...Qc7 and White will have to take on c6 but at least it removes the killer bishop. Impressive game by IM Sliwa
Sep-10-10  ozmikey: Very impressive game. I like the way Sliwa ever-so-gradually opens up the position for the two bishops, until the final position where they are absolutely mighty!
Aug-17-15  zydeco: 35.Kg1! and h4-h5 and black's kingside collapses.
