  patzer2: <enderozdemir> I think you meant to look at 27. Rg6 Kf7 28.Nxd6+ Kxg6 28.Nxc4 (28. Rg7+ Ke6) 28...Bxc4.

If so, then 27. Rg6! Kf7 28. Rxf6+! gives White a clearly decisive attack.

May-24-08  addiction to chess: Breathtaking!
Jul-24-08  Trigonometrist: The most startling game ever!!!
Feb-12-09  WhiteRook48: really nice sacrificial game!
Mar-18-09  WhiteRook48: whoa! he sacs all major pieces??
Jun-18-09  WhiteRook48: going crazy
Jul-27-09  Gryz: There is another amazing game by Malinin, playing the same opening. If you haven't seen that game, you won't believe your eyes.

V B Malinin vs V Savinov, 1988

Mar-17-10  tommy boy: Oustanding...
Aug-26-10  sevenseaman: 27. Ng5 is an unsolvable killing move.
Aug-26-10  sevenseaman: One of the most elegant end-game combinations I've seen.
Oct-11-11  King Sacrificer: This guy doesn't hesitate sacrificing major pieces because he is so good with the minor pieces.

Check Savinov game. :)

Nov-07-11  sevenseaman: 28. Bd5+ is an even more germane sac. The LSB lays down its life to liberate the DSB for a fatal rendezvous a couple of moves later.
Jun-19-12  vinidivici: wow,,,,,the checkmate so good, dude, make this game a puzzle of the day.....from 28.?
Aug-20-14  ColeTrane: even when you see whats coming, starting with that rook sac on h5, its hard to tell from exactly WHERE...
Oct-19-14  Bubo bubo: The uncommon mate was anticipated in Maczynski vs W Pratten, 1948.
Oct-26-14  SpiritedReposte: 27. Ng5! 28. Bd5+! 29. Rh8+! That is quite the mating combination.
May-02-15  ScottElliott: I like 27 Nd2 which nullifies ..Qxe2+. If 27 ..Qxa2+ 28 Kc1. What can White do to prevent Bd5+ Qxd5, Ne7+?. The strategy of h5 Nxh5, Rxh5 is a brilliant sacrifice which can be a thought any time Black fianchettoes his KB and castles but White has not yet castled. Its a good thematic sacrifice to know.
Oct-16-17  condor: How many moves did white need to plan?

Nov-19-20  paavoh: Just fabulous! Mind over matter.
Nov-19-20  carpovius: Crazy Russians))
Jan-03-21  capanegra: There must be few manifestations of the beauty of truth as can be seen in a game of chess like this.
Apr-20-21  Transfinite Cardinal: What the hell man what the hell was that was this a Chess or an Ouija board where this man was talking to the spirits of Anderssen and Morphy.
Sep-11-21  Knightmare07: I've been looking for this game for a LONG time, it feels good to replay the entire continuation from move 18 to the end
