|Dec-24-07|| ||ounos: Exciting attack. Any engine to verify its soundness? 29. ...h5! Brilliant resource, just in time. Was there any defence after 22. ...Rxc3 ?|
|Dec-28-07|| ||ALwoodpusher: Maybe 16.f4 right away forcing exf4 is better for white so to exchange the strong e6 knight.|
|Dec-28-07|| ||beenthere240: While it may be true that all rook endgames are drawn, it's hard to spot your opponent 3 pawns!|
|Sep-12-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: I'm impressed at how Vituigov sprung an attack out of nowhere on the side of the board where White was invading, but was this sound?|
One critical line might be 25.Nxf3,Ng4+; 26.Kg1,Qxh3; 27.Qd3,Re8; 28.Rae1(Rfe1!?),f5. Black has the Exchange and a pile of pawns. If the attack doesn't crash through, he might still win this.
|Sep-12-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Nothing much to say than:
#1.) Very impressive game by Black!!!
#2.) What is this player doing today???
|Sep-12-11|| ||HeMateMe: Does the pun mean "Show Me What You've Got"?|
|Sep-12-11|| ||ounos: And four years later, cg takes notice :P I enjoyed the game once again, like it was brand new :)|
|Sep-12-11|| ||NARC: Does 19. Nf5 work? I would have tried it in blitz.|
|Sep-12-11|| ||abuzic: <20.Nd4>:
20.Nf4 is a better place for white.
|Sep-12-11|| ||scholes: I wonder if secret of finding all these speculative attack is finding the perpetual. And if you position as good as in the game you might find a resource like 29 ..h5.|
|Sep-12-11|| ||kevin86: The attack gains black a few pawns-then net him a win.|

25. xf3 f4+ and slaughter ensues.
Yes, the sac is sound, though white could have defended a lot better (e.g. 21. g5)
|Sep-12-11|| ||mountm: It's hard to see exactly where this game got away from white. as <abuzic> notes, 20.Nd4 seems a bit questionable, but I think 21.hxg5 is a bigger misstep. After something like <21.Nd5 Bxd5 22.exd5 Bxh4 23.Nxf3>, it's still uncomfortable, but not nearly as bad as the board position after 23...Qh4.|
|Sep-12-11|| ||Old King Cole: A classic endgame ploy, to empower the pawn with what for it is a sort of maximum mobility and strength (to go forward in either one of two directions), finding its zenith as it nears promoting. (I suppose a really strong pawn could go in three directions, but this only equals, more or less, the potential moves from a pawn's starting point. Hmm, where does maximum force, power, strength, energy lie in a pawn? The Loyd puzzle with the QBP pops in.)|
|Sep-12-11|| ||Old King Cole: Oops, it's the QNP.|
