  Honza Cervenka: Wow! Quite epic game. I feel that Tanya let Nadya slip off the hook somewhere and lost the game in the end.
Nov-19-12  5leafclover: 41. Bd6 seems like a major concession completely taking the bishop out of play it's neither attacking or defending. Maybe 41. Qa3 instead?
Nov-26-12  chesssalamander: Wow, quite a game! Sister vs. sister for the World Championship! Great French defense, with lots of careful maneuvering before things open up on the kingside.

  perfidious: A real, fighting game between the loving sisters, complete with <Alekhine's Gun>.

  Once: Great fighting game. White never seemed sure which side to attack on. Her king's rook shuttled from kingside to queenside and back again. It almost seemed a relief when it was exchanged.

  Check It Out:

"Oh so that's how it's gonna be, huh, sis?"

"Oh, it's on girl!"

"I'll never let you use that sweater you like again."

"Yeah? Well you can just forget borrowing my shoes if you're going to be like that."

"So what. I can tell you this: you stay away from my boyfriend!"

"I never liked him!!"

"Yes you did!!!"

Nov-26-12  sushijunkie: No quickdraw McGraw & her sis here! Thank nature for knockouts!
Nov-26-12  goodevans: The idea of <56.e6> immediately sprang to mind. Of course white would need to give back the exchange sac after <56...Bf5> but it still seems to have more going for it than did <56.Qf6>.

  kevin86: Black dominates the one file by shifting to the next!
Nov-26-12  waustad: I'd always wanted to see them actually play instead of doing their usual short draw, but after seeing how miserable they looked while playing each other I doubt that they'll both ever play in a knockout tournament again.
Nov-26-12  lemaire90: Wow, beautiful endgame by Nadezhda.
Nov-21-16  The Kings Domain: Good solid positional play by the siblings. Tatiana couldn't launch an attack against black's vulnerable queenside because of big sis' threat on her kingside. Nadezhda's battering and eventual crumbling of Tatiana's tough defense is smooth as it is relentless.
