Oct-28-07  sanyas: 24.♘dxe5 is a real shocker. But it is clearly the best move, so it could be a kind of positional puzzle.
Oct-10-08  Xeroxx: This game has potential.

  whiteshark: ... as much as if an analyst is saying 'This share has potential'?
Jun-20-09  WhiteRook48: or as some random guy saying "The rook on f8 has potential?"
Sep-08-09  kurtrichards: According to chessgames.com, Timman beat Torre 11 to 1 with 5 draws. 24. Ndxe5 is a killer move by Timman who claimed victory sixteen moves later.

  wordfunph: "One win I was very satisfied with, because it was a classical attacking game, was at Tilburg 1982 against Eugenio Torre. I sacrificed two pieces. You know, if you ask a chessplayer about his best games, he thinks first about sacrifices. It's a good feeling to sacrifice pieces correctly. If you'e trying to survive, that's something else."
