Jan-18-05  kostich in time: Gligoric had a "game of the month in Chess life and Review devoted to this game..it is a very, very good game.
Dec-09-05  cdupree: Does someone have a legal version of this score? Quite obviously, 7. ...Ne7 is illegal.
Jan-02-06  aw1988: You're allowed to write "Ne7" because the other one cannot move and it is assumed it's Nge7.
Apr-20-06  notyetagm: What a great combination by Uhlmann, 23 ... ♖xb6! 24 axb6 ♗c5 25 ♖e2 ♖xf2! 26 ♖xf2 e3, combining the tactical themes of <pressure against f7/f2>, <exchanging on the pinning square>, <discovered attack>, and <pawn forks>.
