Oct-29-11  TheBish: Don't know why this is listed under "Notable Games" -- Nick outplays someone rated over 300 points lower, who blunders to accelerate the finish. Surely there must be at least one other game in DeFirmian's vast repertoire that is more noteworthy than this.
Aug-09-12  shakman: game was pretty much equal until 27. g4?
