May-16-07  KokeFischer: "The Bear" draws a masterpiece. The final shoot is a beautiful trick.

Long life to the georgian/israeli/american GM!

May-16-07  ounos: Picturesque!
Apr-30-10  backrank: 34. Rf7+ !! is one of the most beautiful final moves I have ever seen. The finish of this game should enter every textbook (especially on tactics) as a classical example. White moves his rook on a square which seems threefold defended, but none of these defenses actually work because Black's pieces are heavily overloaded.
Jun-01-12  backrank: 23. fxg4! was probably unexpected by Black. It leaves the central square e4 unprotected, but allows tripling of the white heavy pieces on the f-file. It seems that Black is quite helpless against this plan. The interesting situation deserves a detailed study. But having invaded, the heavy pieces can't do the job by themselves, the white bishop must assist them, which is beautifully achieved by 30. e4!. Notice the poor role of his black colleague on c6! This shows once more how much bishops of opposite color are in favor of the attacker.
Jun-01-12  galdur: A fine player and a great teacher of chess Roman is.
Aug-21-21  N.O.F. NAJDORF: Beautiful finish.

33 exd5 looks counterintuitive because after 33 ... Bxd5, the black bishop covers f7 and seems to render Rf7+ impossible...

but 34 Rf7+ becomes possible because the black bishop no longer protects the queen!
