  Ron: Came across this game via the random game feature. Stein--who was an excellent player--resigns after 22 moves. If 22. ... Qxf5 then white can play Rg3+. Mate at g7 can be avoided only by ruinous loss of material.
Jun-14-07  Wolfgang01: Poor Leonid, he ran into his opponents knife. Wrong opening-variant Congratulations to the winner!!

  Domdaniel: Korelov was strong enough to qualify for the USSR championships in the 1960s. He may have had relatively few sparkling wins against elite GMs like Stein, but he was a very good player who seems almost forgotten now.
Nov-23-11  Robeson: If 20...Kh8 (what else?) 21.hxg6 fxg6 22.Qxg6 (threatening mate at g7 and also Rxh7+) 22...Qf7, then White has- at a minimum- 23.Qxf7 Rxf7 24.Nxd6 Rfd7 (the same trick works against 24...Rff8) 25.Nf7+! snagging the Exchange.
