Feb-27-05  Whitehat1963: Here's a cool puzzle after 29. Qg3. Game also features the opening of the day.
Feb-08-06  Jafar219: Very nice game by 'Caribbean Tal'.
Oct-21-06  Far1ey: Very pretty game Rxa2 is amazing!!! <Here's a cool puzzle after 29. Qg3.> Couldn't agree more!
Oct-21-06  LivBlockade: 25. ♘xa7 looks like a mistake. With 2 healthy pawns for the exchange, it seems that White has survived the initial storm. 25. ♘d4 or 25. ♕g2 look like better moves for White. Then the position seems to contain relatively balanced chances.

  al wazir: White could have done better with 29. g5 fxg2 30. gxh6 Raf8 31. Kxg2 or 29...Rg7 30. gxh6 Rxg2+ 31. Kh1.
Oct-21-06  ajile: Interesting game. Black gets a Dutch type formation in e4 opening. Good development and compensation for the pawn. I'm guessing this probably has been refuted by now though. Good surprise tournament weapon.

  kevin86: Can anybody explain why white played Nxa7? He develops the black queen rook and loses two tempi in getting the knight in and out. Black needed no encouragement in his attack-white did all he could to help.

  al wazir: <kevin86: Can anybody explain why white played Nxa7?> I guess it looked like a free ♙. He should have posted the ♘ at e5 or e6.
