Jan-25-03  refutor: interesting game..gufeld sacs his queen and then sets up a nice mating net afterwards...hard to see the winning continuation (at least for me) after he gave up the queen ;)
Dec-11-06  ToTheDeath: 30. bxc3 is forced, when White would have better defensive chances than in the game (Rd3 and Rc2).

32. f5 simply loses, 32. Qe1 would hold out a little longer.

Nice reversal by Gufeld.

Jan-09-11  adbat: 30 b3, think is the best defense,not as stated Gufeld,30 b4. I think after 30 b3, black only and would not have equal chance of winning the game. For example, 30...Re3/ 31.Qf2 Rae8 /32.Rd8 Rd8 /33.Qe3=
