Jun-06-06  THE pawn: Very, very nice annotations here! extremely enjoyable. Thx Yelena!
Jun-06-06  JonONeill: Really enjoyable annotations... good game as well.
Jun-06-06  dakgootje: After move 12. h3 you write <A novelty at that time. I didnt want to follow Kwaitkowsky-Rendle game!!(...)>. Now my question is: Did you find that out in research after the game, or 'just' knew the line from opening preperations, and that it wasnt a very attractive variation?
Jun-08-06  thathwamasi: Someone please explain the pun for me
Jun-08-06  pulsar: I played this over twice today, I really enjoyed the annotation.Thanks!

Jun-08-06  THE pawn: Congrats for making the game of the day!
Jun-08-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Excellent game by our dear <Yelena>. The game comes so much more alive with these annotations. Great stuff!
Jun-08-06  dakgootje: Quite supriced when i saw that i already had seen the GOTD when i first looked at chessgames.com today, but now i understand lol
Jun-08-06  JonONeill: Bit of a coincidence that I posted here a couple of days ago... this is a fully deserved GOTD.
Jun-08-06  CapablancaFan: <thathwamasi: Someone please explain the pun for me> Dmitrij Driamin was in serious time trouble. He actually played pretty solid chess until 39...Qa2?? Even Yelena Dembo admits herself that 39...Kg7 would have held the balance. Dmitrij essentially lost because of time, hence the pun.
Jun-08-06  United33: ouch !! i really hate time crisis blunder

  kevin86: This was a doubly good game. The play was really good-short of black's time-trouble blunder. Second,the annotation was concise but very light and enjoyable.
Jun-08-06  Jack Kerouac: Dembones,
Dembones,
Dem T-h-i-g-h bones....
Jun-08-06  itz2000: GREAT GAME!!

I only watched it in 20 minutes... but I'm going to rewatch with a board next to me next week when I will have time (after last 3 finals!).

although I don't play French (I do Scillian, Nimzo-Indian, Queen's Gambit and English)

Jun-08-06  Veroth: Fantastic annotations. They really helped with my understanding and appreciation of the game.
Jun-08-06  ianD: Thanks Yelena anotations really add to the pleasure of replaying the moves
Mar-04-07  Rubenus: This game doesn't work. It says that it is loading something. Am I the only one with this problem? Are the annotations the cause of it? This is the first time I have this problem.
Mar-04-07  Sydro: Rubenus It works if you change java viewer to Sjkbase. It doesn't work for me either with the default viewer.
Sep-21-09  zdigyigy: Closed French positions are just awful...

  Richard Taylor: Great game! The annotations were interesting. Enterprising play with the Tarrasch. I ecountered g5 early playing White v the Tarrasch and played g4 although attacked down the h file eventually then the centre.
Dec-02-10  Xeroxx: And what happens if black play instead: 20... Qg7

  wordfunph: <At this moment 30-35 chessplayers gathered around our table and one grandmaster said to my father and coach: "your daughter is either a genius or crazy!" "Of course the first!" was the prompt answer of my father, but his hands were still shaking even some hours after the game, due to the emotional strain>

thanks to IM Dembo's annotations :-)
