  OneArmedScissor: White was about to lose... then ...Qf3????????
Dec-24-05  s4life: I've never seen such a blunder at this level... was this a blitz?
Dec-24-05  setebos: well 28.nb7 was not so hot either as it lost the knight
Dec-24-05  The King Returns1: Damn, this looks like one of my games! Any reason why black didn't resign after move 50? I would have laughed if White tried to promote all 3 pawns at the very end before mating!
Dec-24-05  THE pawn: Even with time pressure, you can't miss this, oh my god!
Dec-24-05  SickedChess: if you see the game without know who are the players, you can think "what a patzers!" but both are GM! and the game is blitz... zeitnot rulez!

  OhioChessFan: Wow, I thought Nb7 was bad until I saw Qf3. And then Black plays to the bitter end? You have got to be kidding. I almost can't believe this game was played between 2 GM's.
Dec-25-05  sharkbenjamin: Never give up!
Dec-25-05  fggg72: I am glad this happened between two is a hope that chess is still a human game!!! not a boring machine minded game.
Sep-20-10  eightbyeight: White missed 56. Kg3, mating next move.
Oct-01-10  Ra8: 56. Kg3 h4+
Dec-27-11  Uvulu: 56.Kg3 h4+ 57.Kf3 h3 58.Qf2# is still better than the text, not that it matters much...
May-21-15  Xonatron: Actually, white missed 51. Kg3 b2 (or h5) 52. Qg7#
