Apr-22-08  OneArmedScissor: Classic Sutovsky here!
Apr-25-08  nolanryan: a wizardly double-bishop sac. although really it was just a single-bishop sac w/ the dividends of the double.
Apr-29-08  Andrew Chapman: Interesting that 21.Rb1 traps the queen or wins back the piece although after Qxb1, QxQ, Ng6, black still has a material advantage. Not sure who is winning after that.

Jan-03-13  computer chess guy: 22. .. Qc2 is better than the game move, but White can then play Nc7! and now Black must lose the Rook for the Knight (if Black tries .. Ra7 to save the Rook, then Bxg7! is fatal).
