Jul-24-17  geeker: Doggone, Leko playing the Benoni! I do recall PL saying that he needed to spice up his opening repertoire in order to score in Open events.
Jul-24-17  actinia: a powerful game by Leko. and by that, I mean I have no idea what's going in this game :)

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Black's Exchange sacrifice looked so casual and cavalier, but in reality, the sacrifice has occurred 32 times according to the database, and the result distinctly favor Black. The sequence beginning with 25.Ra5 wherein Leko refuses to regain material looks esp. cool. However, not at all certain that this represents best play for White.
Jul-25-17  Strelets: <An Englishman> On that we're in full agreement. This is a game in need of further examination.
