  luzhin: Gorgeous endgame by Sargissian, especially the manouvre 65...Bd7 and 66..Ba4
Feb-22-07  Robotnik: Sargissian has proved that the pair of bishops is stronger then two knights. Wonderful bishop sac at move 64. It remembers Shirovs famous Lh3!!-move
May-26-07  argishti: 66.Ba4!!!!! this was the highlight of the game. there was no way for white to defend. brilliant.
May-27-07  Akavall: 66. Ba4! is very nice; it would make a great puzzle.

I wonder if black could still win after 65. Bc6.

Jun-22-07  Himena: Ba4 is so easy to see,i don't know why you are all that dazzled
