Feb-22-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Wow, that's a very great game indeed, as <Karpova> said! I rarely like games where the defending side wins, but this is one of them!

My favorite move: 28...Bb2!!

Very interesting opening also.....I need to find more games with this one.

Feb-22-06  dakgootje: <Karpova> was right indeed! Very nice defended by Godena
Feb-22-06  underrated: <My favorite move: 28...Bb2!!> white also respnded nicely with 29.Bc2

those kinds of counter counter deflections trick me all the time and i need a bunch of time to get it straight in my head

Nov-15-08  areknames: What an absolute cracker of a game, should be GOTD.
Oct-05-12  Balmo: This should be GOTD under The Art of Defense. Brilliant display from Godena.
Oct-16-14  SpiritedReposte: Nothing like refuting an attack with some unexpected moves.
Oct-16-14  ForeverYoung: Very spirited game. The kind one likes to see!

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 28...Bb2 and 29...Rc8 are not just brilliant defensive tactics, they also amuse. In my playing days, I sometimes laughed when an opponent played moves like these. And then I'd resign.
