  Honza Cervenka: Very well played game by Kieseritzky with an elegant finish.
Jul-19-07  benba57: Many people get nervous about having doubled pawns on the f-file with black, at least when castling kingside, but it seems that many times black can win against Evan's gambit despite the double pawns on the f-file.

  Gilmoy: 22.gxf6+ Qxg4
Oct-17-10  sfm: <Gilmoy: 22.gxf6+ Qxg4 > As stated, that is undoubtedly a forced mate. I'd estimate that white max. can pull it out for 25 moves or so...
