  tamar: How good is Cheparinov? Corus B had a wealth of talent.
Jan-31-05  iron maiden: He's a little inconsistent from game to game and tournament to tournament. At 19, he may not have the potential of Karjakin or Carlsen, but we'll see a lot of him in the future.
Jan-31-05  themindset: this is a yugoslav attack, it transposed...

  tamar: 15...Rc8 is the first new move. 15...a6 and 15...Qf6 have been tried previously.
Jan-31-05  pastpawn: I once tried 9 ... Bxg4 in a tournament game back in playing days ('83 or so) and won pretty quickly. At the time, it wasn't in any of the opening books: is it now a well-known continuation?
Jan-06-06  remilege: 11.Bg1 is a mistake. 11.Nb3 a5 12.a4 Cxe3 13.Qxe3 is the main variation
Jan-18-06  azi: I really like this game. Its the "new dragon". Black gets a good deal for his bishop. That is, 2 pawns, a long lasting initiative and attack, threats aginst the white king and winning the d4 knight. Also black made creative use of the c file with his rook. A great game. Black really takes and maintains control from move 1 to 39. The dragon still breathes fire.
Oct-17-07  The Chess Express: I like 11. Nxc6 bxc6 12. Bg5 (!) Rb8 13. Be2 h6 14. Bh4 Ne5 15. 0-0-0
Nov-29-07  kellmano: That's a truly awesome game.The position after 33.....e4 is awesome.

Were it played by a proper big name, it'd be (rightly) celebrated.

Mar-24-08  The Chess Express: <kellmano:The position after 33.....e4 is awesome.>

Awsome for black. White's horrible ♔ placement and boxed up ♔ side pieces let Cheparinov really shine in this game.

May-09-10  ToTheDeath: Admirable nonchalance about being down an entire rook. Black just keeps on improving his position and making sure White stays tied up.

Shak blundered eventually with 32.Rg1- he was probably already in serious time trouble after trying to defend for so long.

Mar-20-17  Saniyat24: Cheparinov showed great attacking skills as well as great defensive skills...the move I liked most was when he retreated his Knight to f6 and then played 29...Ne4...after that he was unstoppable. This opening is a deadly one...if assembled properly it can cause some havoc...well mistakes are what makes chess so beautiful and every move has a great many alternate variations.
