Nov-14-04  ConLaMismaMano: Great miniature! Kozul's pieces look asfixiated, the bishop is completely blocked.
Nov-14-04  molinov: Fantastic game 14.Nxf7! and 20.g6!! are two brillant moves. After 20.... hxg6 21.Rh3 and black is doomed.
Apr-29-05  halcyonteam: great game, well done volokitin.

14.Nxf7 ! is sac nicely

  plang: A month earlier at the European Championship at Ohrid Volokitin had defeated Kozul in a Boleslavsky Sicilian; here Kozul chose an anti-Sicilian system with 3..e5. 10..Nbd7 was played in Ochoa-Lizcano Spanish Ch. 1991 (game not included in this database); 10..exf?! was new. 12..Nbd7? turned out to be the decisive error; 12..h6 should have been played. The pawn sacrifice 13..Ne5!? 14 Bxe5..dxe 15 Qxe5..Bd6 16 Qf5 was suggested as an improvement. 16..Qc7 17 g5..Ne5 would have been a tougher defense though White would have had a big advantage in the endgame. 18..bxc 19 gxf..Nxf6 20 Bh6!..Qc7 21 Rg3..Bd8 22 Rxf6+..Bxf6 23 Qxf6+..Qf7 24 Bxg7+..Kg8 25 Bh6+ would have also have been decisive.

Very pretty attack.
