Jun-06-10  Nezhmetdinov: Pretty zugzwang
Jun-06-10  Bobsterman3000: 12...Qxc3 seems excessively greedy considering Karjakin's lack of development and poor piece coordination. Leave such moves for Fritz or Rybka...
Jun-07-10  death and glory: it seems like karajakin forgot he playes against a 2700 GM. he sac his rook and pawns like he plays against an IM rated 2400 max. hallo kara, u must play more carefully. if u will play so weak, ull get punished.
Jan-02-15  Conrad93: 12...Qxc3 is not that greedy at all.

You act as if accepting the sacrifice is a guaranteed win for white, and recent games prove that this is not the case at all.

  perfidious: While taking the position that, without deep analysis on my part, the outcome is far from clear, the previous kibitzes were all made immediately after the game was played, not with the luxury of more than four years' subsequent practice.

It seems unfair to criticise others on this basis.
