  Shadout Mapes: Pliester was doing perfectly fine until 28.h4? and 29.g3??. Is there any reason for this?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: Black threatened to catch the Knight (Rg7) or beat on f3. 28.h4 is not the best move (28.Rxd5 exd5 29.Bd3 looks a little bit better), but black was winning anyhow.

  PizzatheHut: <hucknoog> Maybe my browser is messed up, but I don't think 13...Qxh8 is possible.
Oct-24-04  aw1988: Qxh8 is an illegal move.
Mar-19-05  FatalError: <aw1988> why is 13.gxh8=Q illegal what do u mean i think its all ok converting the g pawn as a queen! btw what is illegal move anyway ? ps:cool game
Mar-20-05  FLCLlove: No, the actual move for black Qa1xh8, apparantly <hucknoog> didn't see the pawn d4 pawn, or his browser was messed up so he wasn't able to see it.

  sea7kenp: I don't like White's 25th Move: That Rook Pawn didn't seem very good to eat.
