Jul-01-07  Manic: A nice exchange sac at move 11. The last move, 32...Kg7!, is a quiet way to finish the game off.
Jul-01-07  Timex: White played around with his king too much, so he got pushed up the board,
Aug-09-07  ChessDude33: The position after 15...Qc6 looks just so dominating for black. My god what a devastating exchange sacrifice.

  tamar: 19...Rd5 is a fantastic in between move, because 19...Rh5 immediately does not work with the knight on c2 guarding e3.

But by first luring the knight to d4, the 20...Rh5 21...Nd5 sequence now cannot be answered by 21 g4 22 Bg3 because the knight will hop to e3 attacking queen and setting up mate on g2

  perfidious: While I'm not familiar with a lot of Dorfman's games, this surely is his Immortal Game.

A beautiful effort by the Russo-French grandmaster.

  Fusilli: What a beauty. Probably one of those games that was never GOTD because no one came up with a clever pun.
