Jan-02-08  Phebas: 37. ...Kf8 38. Qh8+ Ke7 39.Qe8++ 1-0;beautiful game, Mr. Salov!
Jun-16-13  King Crusher: On 36...Kf8 white has no better option than to force a repetition. Salov's speculative attack succeeded only because of an outright defensive blunder on the part of his opponent. Thus I do not consider this game to be a brilliancy.

  offramp: I can easily imagine that the move 36...Kg8 was made under YOOGE time pressure.
Jul-12-20  tessathedog: King Crusher is kind of right, but Salov was never losing, and his creative attack deserved the reward it got. I particularly like the Rc1-c4-g4 Rook lift to bring the Rook into the attack.
