Jul-20-08  satch boogie: Black really played horribly in this game, even with a rook ahead. 16...Ne3 was terrible, 16...Qxe4 should have been obvious.
Sep-22-08  Cactus: I suspect Smirnov wasn't trying here, seeing as he's a Master level player.
Dec-06-08  TheaN: 16....Qxe4 0-1? 2.Ra3 is no exchange sacrifice, it is a King sacrifice: meaning that playing this is what beginners do.
