Aug-10-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 15...Rxd5!! A wonderful queen-sac, that exploits extremely weak white's kingside.
Aug-10-07  hkannan2000: How Helling 'grobs' the opportunity to make a killing! Every player must have at least one immortal. Any collections of immortals?
Aug-10-07  xequemate: 32. Rg1 was a mistaken. perhaps c5 to break the pawns barrier was better
Aug-09-10  sambo: 20. c4 is no good; it allows 22...Re6, and all is over for white. Can someone with a big computer run a few ply with 20. b4 instead?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Our Player of the Day gives us a game worthy of Game of the Day. Although I can't help but think that Grob defended weakly, over the board this sort of sacrifice will always have excellent chances vs. all but the greatest defensive geniuses.
