Apr-16-08  Knight13: 14...b5! is excellent. Imagine Black living a life without that move! He'd probably be dead.
Sep-09-09  kooley782: I agree, that pawn sac was very good. Gained some space on the q-side as well. This was a well-fought game by both sides.
Oct-29-09  Makiavel: no sac here..white cannot take that pawn because of a6!!
