Apr-22-04  alvishope1: if 23...Qc7+ 24.Kb1 Be2 25.Rxh6+! and 26.Rf6 wins. 23...Rc8+! / 24...Qc7+!! (-Qxc8+ 25.Nc6!!+-) Nice; Black is little better and White must give material back if he wants to survive.
Apr-26-12  Olavi: This hasn't been commented on much. Everybody have a look, a fantastic game.
Jun-13-15  MarkBuckley: Black's cool defense is reminiscent of J Littlewood vs Botvinnik, 1961
