Apr-16-08  Major Dude: Terrific game by Gulko
Dec-26-11  King Death: Gulko won a fine game in the style of his great opponent, but I think he missed a quicker kill; after 31.g4 Black can't capture and if he plays 31...f5 32.g5 buries the rook at g6 and maybe White can even play
Apr-08-12  sreeskamp: See for Gulko's comments on this and 24 other games in the new book 'lessons with a grandmaster' (Gulko & Sneed). What an highly instructive book!
