Sep-02-04  Knight13: Good game! 36. Rc1 is beautiful!
Feb-04-07  morphyvsfischer: This game makes me want to play the Hedgehog over and over again. 21 Qd2 doesn't appear to be a very good move (it stops ...d5 temporarily) and 23 cxb5?! just invites Black to smash White.
Jun-16-07  sanyas: IMHO, this game is somewhat similar to R Byrne vs Fischer, 1963, but I prefer the latter.
Oct-15-07  Alphastar: 36. ..Rc1!! is indeed beautiful.

  whiteshark: A hedgehog pawn formation. Nice pawn pushes on moves 22, 23 and 24, breaking off the center for the longrange bishops.
