Feb-11-03  refutor: an intriguing idea by shabalov...instead of playing 18. ... Bxf1 like others have done, he retreats all the way back to a8 and gets a great attack up the long diagonal on the light squares. quite a far sighted idea...i wonder what yermolinsky could have done to try and stop his plan?
Nov-05-03  Shadout Mapes: MCO says he should've played 22.f3 to help blunt the attack on the diagnal, then ends the line saying white is winning (+/-).
Jun-03-08  computer chess guy: 30. ♗g7? loses fast. White can hold out longer by giving back some material: engines suggest 30. ♖e1 ♖xh6 31. h4 as a possible alternative, when White is still not comfortable but surviving.
