Jun-06-10  Knightequila: Vallejo is blind. Bad end.

Brilliant opening by Gelfand. Save Fischer.

Jun-06-10  Bobsterman3000: This looks more like 3 minute blitz than rapid
Jun-07-10  JohnBoy: white to move at 27. A Th puzzle. the point is to see not just the d6 check, but black's clever defense - and white's obliteration there of with the q sac.
Jun-08-10  perkychesscat: I think 28..Qc2 is a really nice shot at a failed defensive resource!
