May-16-04  iron maiden: And he was actually winning, too.
May-16-04  Brian Watson: I don't think he was, actually. After 29.Be1, white threatens Bf2. How should that be met?

  Calli: 29...a5! 30.Rb5+ Ka7 31.Rxa5+ Kb8=
Jun-24-04  sneaky pete: <getReti> No plan, no march, just running scared.
Jan-20-09  WhiteRook48: why 29...Rad8?? Falling for the skewer tactic.
"That move really costa Black the game"
Oct-24-16  GrandMaesterPycelle: according to Polgar, 28...a6 is already almost losing. 29...a5 is the only defense, but 30.Rb5+ Ka7 and now 31.Bxa5 retains an advantage.
