Jul-17-04  ArturoRivera: Why not 6.- Bxd5?
what was protecting that fierce Knight in the center?
Jul-17-04  Woodpusher: 6.Bxd5 Qxe5+
Jul-21-04  ArturoRivera: Oh i see, thanks
Jan-27-06  goragoragora: Good game by young Garry. I would
prefer simply 37...h5! tho.
Sep-02-09  goldenbear: He was probably so proud of and relieved to have found 36.Kf7! that he missed 37.h5, which was simpler.
Oct-16-14  MrJafari: That was a nice game and I think White lost after exchanging Rooks.
