Feb-17-04  Cecil Brown: 13.Rxd5! Ouch, any idea what the best reply to this shocker is?
Aug-19-04  acirce: 16..b6 locking in the queen doesn't seem wise, why not 16..Qd8 ?
Aug-19-04  clocked: <acirce> 16.. Qd8 17.b4 Bd6 18.Bd4 Ra8 19.c5
Aug-19-04  Knezh: Maybe 11. ..a6 instead of Ne4?

  Zenchess: 10...Ne4? looks like the howler to me; now Black can't answer 11.Nb5 with ...Ne8, covering c7 and d6. 11...Bb6 just gets the Queen stranded or trapped.
Aug-20-04  Bucky Katt: After 13. Rxd5...Nf6! is considered best. However, according to Crouch, White could have played more simply with 11. Nxe4! dxe4 12. Qxe4! leading to an advantage in various lines.
Jul-03-08  zev22407: 12)..Nxf2 is better and black has counter play.

  Domdaniel: Apparently Kasparov had analysed six possible replies to 13.Rxd5. Vaganian managed to find a 7th way to lose...

<[Kasparov] produced the sensational new move 13.Rxd5!. But while his opponent, Rafael Vaganian, was plunged deep in thought, Kasparov got up and started to complain to his former compatriot Lev Psakhis that he could not remember his analysis! Apparently Black had six possibilities, the best of which led to the better endgame for White.

Fortunately for poor Gary, Vaganian eased his torment by choosing a seventh line and was forced to resign a few moves later. I wish I could have Kasparov's problems.>
