Oct-30-07  ounos: I wonder if occupying e5 with the bishop instead of knight, at move 31, with a future f6 (not too soon though, or the knight might be trapped) to secure black squares, could be safer. After the rook sacrifice Black's position looks hopeless.

  kingscrusher: Guys this was a truly fantastic game in my book. The exchange sac on b6 is so deep that even Rybka thought it was rubbish until you force it to go into it.

  arsen387: GMs always amaze me how they use the power of pass pawns. In this game it's hard to understand the reason of exchange sac on b6, but after that the central pawns look so much stronger. A terrific game by Gabriel.
