  patzer2: Black makes an error with 23...Qd8? when 23...Qxg4! maintains a winning advantage.

Black makes a decisive blunder with 28....Qb6??, allowing White to pull off a brilliant pursuit mate after 29. Qxd6+!! Instead, 28...Rb5= as suggested by <RV> holds.

  lilfoohk: He shouldn't be finding some Dreaming attacking chances by Qb6 , better is a queen centralization or rook moves , even f3 is better in my opinion , probably didn't saw the tactical solution
Sep-07-06  kellmano: Awesome game. Really couldn't follow it at all. One question: why do so many players seem to play to one move awawy form mate, then resign? I'd have thought it was courteous to either resign at the point where the opponent has no hard moves to make, or allow them to checkmate. From move 32, even i could see the mate in this game.
Sep-07-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <kellmano> I agree of course that it's poor sportsmanship, but Black was probably too pissed. :)
Sep-07-06  sfm: <kellmano: ..why do so many players seem to play to ...> Accepting death can be hard. Making one more move is free. And of course, miracles are known to have happened. It is always OK to play one more move.

  kevin86: <sfm> DEATH!!! We're not talking the end of life here-just a loss at a GAME! I know many people take this game seriously-but wow! Who is history is more scary: Alekhine or Stalin?

A really good game-white keeps black and his king on the run.

  kevin86: It's like the bit where Stanley Kowalski came home and thought his wife was going to kill him because he saw a bottle under the sink that said:POLISH REMOVER.
Oct-01-10  sevenseaman: A good pun, a great game and the Pole was only one move away from disaster or removed as he feared.

White taking out both the Black Ns at the expense of a B and a R was brilliant as was the taking out of the advanced pawn later.

I agree with <patzer2> the withdrawal of the Q to d8 was a premature abdication.

Black's later trying to mount an attack of his own with Q on b6 was wishful and it, without doubt, facilitated White's maneuvering.
