May-27-04  ConLaMismaMano: If 36.Rxf8 Qd1+ 37.Kh2 Qd6+ 38.Kg1 Qxf8, etc.
Nov-26-04  Lipsome: I love how Kamsky plays 6 queens moves in a row then develops a knight on the "rim" defying well know principles...goes to show that they aren't set in gold.
Nov-26-04  Minor Piece Activity: You're right. They're set in stone. =D
Nov-27-04  Lipsome: it was late when I wrote lol
Oct-31-05  ericjohnlamano: Just when Gelfand, with his seemingly edge in a clear position,thinks he can all wraps up....a thunderbolt from a clear blue sky putting him in a mating bind
Oct-31-05  Koster: Fine defensive game by Kamsky that he wins when Gelfand pushes too hard to win with only slight edge.
Aug-09-07  aazqua: Can you says "oops"? Gelfand really gets caught with his pants down on this one. I love these Grunfeld games as they so clearly illustrate on plan being better than another. Gelfand is stuck dealing with connected passed pawns or trying to find a way to pick on off without getting caught offsides. Brilliant.
