Nov-17-08  aazqua: Who took away Sveshnikov and replaced him with a monkey? I mean what the heck is going on here? For starters, someone should teach Sveshnikov how to play the Sveshnikov. Try bring out the king knight first so your opponent can't throw you in the bind. This line is just inferior. Than he dances around the board hoping that Judit is going to miss one move combinations? Are you kidding me? What a cockatoo.
Nov-17-08  waustad: What's wrong with Ra6 now?
Nov-17-08  drkodos: White move 82 must have been h7+ not g7.

Mar-11-09  KingG: <For starters, someone should teach Sveshnikov how to play the Sveshnikov. Try bring out the king knight first so your opponent can't throw you in the bind. This line is just inferior.> I don't know if this is supposed to be a joke, but Sveshnikov hasn't played 4...Nf6 in a long time. Instead he now prefers 4...e5, sometimes called the Kalashnikov variation. I don't think there is anything wrong with it, although it's perhaps not as solid as the Sveshnikov, but not as (over)analysed either.
Jul-23-09  Craigokat: I was present when this game was being played. Sveshnikov is probably over twenty years older than Judith and it was telling in the fifth hour of play. Svesh was looking pretty good up to that point
