Jan-17-04  ksadler: Hey Ron! Here's a queen sack for your collection!
Jan-17-04  Benjamin Lau: Ron's queen sack collection is full I'm afraid. I hope he makes another collection to house more queen sacks.
Jul-12-05  12929011: This doesn't look very Leningrad to me...
Jul-13-05  hintza: I agree, it's probably misclassified.
Feb-05-06  fred lennox: A more classical player probably prefers 21...d6 If exd6...Nxd6 and may of prefered to move the d pawn on move 28. Bird has a penchant for flank attacks.
Mar-12-08  Knight13: Maybe 33. h4 is better?
Mar-12-08  mistreaver: Why didn't white played on queenside immediately instead of loosing his knight and getting doubled pawns? <Maybe 33. h4 is better?> hmm could be but it would leave g3 and f3 pawns quite loose. I don't get why white played 48 Rd8 and 49 Kg2?
Jun-18-08  Lutwidge: Schiffers, in his normally pretty extensive annotations in the Hastings tournament book has this to say about 40. ...fxg3:

"A pretty but not altogether sound continuation: 40. Q to Kt3 decided the game immediately."

Huh? :)

Sep-13-13  Vermit: The more I look at the game the more I like 44. Be3 less. 44.Qd2 looks much better or even 44. Qh4 Rxh6 45.Kh2!? 48. Rd8 was an attempt to meet the threat of 48...Ng1+
