Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-27-04  Kenkaku: 19. Rac1 was a nice move. If 19...Qxc4 then 20. Qxc4 Rxc4 21. Bxh7+ Nxh7 22. Rxc4 Nxg5 23. Rxd7. 59. h4+! made for a beautiful finish, for if 59...Kxh4 simple 60. Bf6#. After 59...Kg6 or Kh6 the endgame is lost.
Jan-10-06  babakova: This game shows why Adams should never be underestimated, especially with white. Im sure that he will do better in corus 2006 than most people seem to think.

This game ends quite amusingly with a rather rare mating theme, Kxh4 Bf6#.

Aug-10-09  arsen387: Great Adams! this game is worth a look
Sep-28-10  Everett: "Kasparov Attack?" looks like he played this on two occasions.
Jun-17-13  Everett: Tenacious D from the old champ. i thought he was done round move 30. Adams finally convinced him to give up the ghost.
Feb-03-15  falso contacto: 30. f4!! Nice.
