Oct-03-05  like a GM: What an attack! And it was blitz!
Jan-10-06  woodenbishop: If ever there was a true chess genius, a master who saw what no other saw, a magician whose tricks take our breath away, it was none other than the late, GREAT, Mikhail Tal.

Jul-11-06  kevindeane: brilliantly planned attack. and I thought sicilian was able to counter any onslaught. Tal was bananas!!
Jul-11-06  RookFile: Fortunte favors the bold, dynamic, attacking player.

  thegoodanarchist: Dzindzi is a tough, talented GM and specializes in blitz. here he looks as a child compared to the former champ.
Jun-27-15  dchrist: Black needs to get his queen active and begin a counterattack.

22... a6? (better is ..Qb6)

25... Ng8?? (..Qb6 imperative)
