  Honza Cervenka: From seemigly dead drawish position with Bishops of opposite colour but with little plus in more active Rook Bogo outplayed Alekhine in great style. Nice stuff.
Mar-05-08  Knight13: LOL Those two bishops in the middle is funny. Always came back after moving out, until White's bishop found targets and decided to pack his bags and go kill pawns.
Oct-02-10  soothsayer8: Wow, how did that game NOT end in a draw?

  Honza Cervenka: <soothsayer8: Wow, how did that game NOT end in a draw?> It did not end in draw because white had all the time some advantage thanks to more active Rook and because Bogoljubov played the ending that day like a god.
