  Honza Cervenka: 25.Qb5!! (sac of Bishop) with idea to sac the Queen in the next move is fantastic. Of course, black cannot play 26...Qxb6 for 27.Nxe7+ with mate on f8 and if 26...Qd7, then 27.e6.
Mar-15-04  Whitehat1963: What great calculations from Fernandez!
Feb-23-05  aw1988: Unbelievable!
Oct-29-10  sevenseaman: A hidden brilliancy!

All White moves from 25. Q b5 onwards are brilliant. 34. Kg4 is pivotal for what follows next.

Sep-17-11  th3doctor: Wow what a stunning move 25. Qb5!! and some brilliantly precise calculation to follow it up.

  perfidious: Beautiful indeed, and a worthy Sunday POTD.
