Jun-05-05  lentil: 40. Qxe5+ Kxe5 41. Nf7+ wins a piece, but do the black centre pawns compensate?
Oct-10-08  shintaro go: <40. Qxe5+ Kxe5 41. Nf7+ wins a piece> No it doesn't. For starters, the King cannot take the White Queen with the Rook there. Don't know which game you're watching there.
Oct-10-08  Aspirador: He means 40...Qxe5.
Apr-02-16  Joker2048: Very nice play by kamsky...
Sep-06-19  JohnBoy: <lentil>: It appears Kamsky saw that he was winning a piece in any case. He chose to do so in the fashion that left him with more solid winning chances.
May-13-20  joddon: 34 Qd5 is the greatest Grandmaster blunder of all time.

  perfidious: <joddon>, try the howler by White in Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1892 on for size.

  Everett: A really strange looking game!

I like the h-pawn push from White here, and simply sliding the monarch to safety with Kf1.

Not sure what White was thinking on move 31, when 31.Bd1 allows access to either side of the board, and the king's defense as well. In the game, Black could have shut it out for some time with 31..d3

And I find 33..Nex5 inexplicable, when I can capture 33..Bxe5, activating my Bishop, and freeing my rook from the back rank.
