Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-11  Llawdogg: According to Dzindzichashvili, Kupreichik smothered himself in this game by leaving his pawn on f4. That made his dark squared bishop bad and his whole position cramped. This in turn led to a quick and easy victory for Roman.
Jun-01-12  backrank: Indeed, it all looks so easy ... the black heavy pieces invade and that's it ... Dzindzi finishes his opponent off with the hammer blow 25. ... Rxg2!! (26. Rxg2 Qf1#). And White never has had any chance ... at least it seems so! But honestly, after the pawn sac Black already seems to be better off. Nice idea to turn the Steinitz defense into a gambit!
Jul-12-17  clement41: Full domination of the light squares by Black; doing this to Kupreichik (rip) is impressive. Great coordination of the forces, the Be4 is a monster while white's bishop is a sorry sight
