|Nov-08-05|| ||aw1988: Is wasting a tempo with a3 and a4 necessarily a good idea?|
|Jun-19-07|| ||Richard Taylor: Great game!!|
|Sep-15-07|| ||notyetagm: <Richard Taylor: Great game!!>|
|May-01-08|| ||Ulhumbrus: According to Fischer, White stands better after 6 Bc4. White has some advantage in space, and White's minor pieces are three moves ahead in development of Black's minor pieces, but can White make these assets count?|
|Sep-19-08|| ||whiteshark: Position after <33.Qg4> is a good Sunday puzzle: |

It is said that Anand called it the best game he'd ever seen (New In Chess Magazine Nr. 3/2005, p.106)
|Sep-19-11|| ||theodor: <<patzer2>...In the final position, play could have continued 37.h4...(or h3)> dear patzer2, you make 18 forced! moves to prove black's win! are you inkling white have resigned after figuring out this line!|
|Jun-20-12|| ||Cemoblanca: 1 of the best games I've ever seen! Emil is a very creative & intelligent player! Bravo! :0)|
|Sep-19-12|| ||perfidious: Gormally must have been in shock after his opponent's response to the seemingly powerful 33.Qg4.|
Definite POTD material.
|Feb-13-13|| ||Shams: New In Chess 3/2005 asked top GMs to pick the best chess game they had ever seen. This was Anand's choice.|
|Jul-19-13|| ||FSR: Amazing game. Definitely should be GOTD.|
|Jul-19-13|| ||FSR: Sutovsky's Immortal.|
|Apr-11-14|| ||offramp: < FSR: Sutovsky's Immortal.> Is he?|
|Apr-11-14|| ||newzild: Awesome game, with a beautiful concluding mate! And it's appropriate that today's Opening of the Day is the 3. Bb5 Sicilian, as that is synonymous with Sutovsky.|
|Apr-11-14|| ||newzild: ... and isn't Gormally the dude who got punched out by Aronian during a fight over the latter's missus?|
|Apr-11-14|| ||solskytz: <Offramp> Of course - we all are.|
|Apr-11-14|| ||Shams: <newzild> Yes, but it was the other way round: Aronian punched by Gormally. Scroll back to June '06 here for a hilarious retelling of the episode in verse by <Chesschatology>:|
|Apr-11-14|| ||morfishine: Electrifying Game!
Without knowing the players, I would've guessed Nezhmetdinov Rashid Gibiatovich Nezhmetdinov was playing Black
|Apr-11-14|| ||offramp: <Shams: <newzild> Yes, but it was the other way round: Aronian punched by Gormally.>|
It was a two-hit fight. Gormally hit Aronian and Aronian hit the deck.
|Apr-11-14|| ||kevin86: White can escape the mate and be subject to losing his queen, black getting a second queen...and mate.|
Or he can take the bishop and be mated on the spot.
|Apr-11-14|| ||Phony Benoni: Don't know about this game being "Sutovsky's Immortal" How about Sutovsky vs Smirin, 2002, which has been both GOTD and POTD <twice>?|
|Apr-11-14|| ||Tigranny: <Ulhumbrus> I have to disagree with Fischer's statement and agree with your question on whether the assets count. The bishop on c4 is pretty limited in scope if it wants to focus on f7, and it potentially can become inactive on b3 or removed by a knight maneuver.|
I must say this is a very impressive game by Emil, very worthy as GOTD.
|Apr-12-14|| ||mumra3patzer: Could someone please explain how black wins after white playa h4 in the final position.
|Apr-12-14|| ||Shams: <mumra3patzer> If you scroll through the previous kibitzing you'll see that your question has already been answered.|
|Aug-28-15|| ||eyalbd: A talk about this game (among other things) in a recent Chessbase interview with Sutovsky:|
|Mar-19-16|| ||naresb: A great demonstration of defence, co-ordination of pieces for attack, tactics, combinations, sacrifice by Black.|
The Silicon friend points that both players blundered after 30. Bxb4. Black should have gone for 30... Rc8 i/o 30. dxe4, White should have gone for 31. BxRf8 i/o c4 and again White should have gone for 32. RxBb2 i/o BxRf8. A perfect example of failure to weigh exactly the positional elements and material.
