Jun-10-05  Runemaster: Some great queen manouvres by Mr B in this game - he keeps finding ways of generating threats.
Feb-12-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: Thier are great manoeuvers and there are good maneuvers.
Jul-20-06  Maynard5: White has to try 13. Bxb5+ here, rather than 13. 0-0, since he is virtually lost after the powerful 13. ... Qd5 and 14. ... Ba6.

  GrahamClayton: Attempting to regain the sacrificed pawn by 15.a4 is an error - 15.♗g5 is better.
