Sep-19-08  parmetd: This game is amazing! Super bishop! 21... Bxa3 23.. Bxb2 24... Bc3 25... Bxe1!

This should be a gotw or at least a tactics puzzle for last day.

Sep-19-08  blacksburg: yeah, i wish i could get a bishop like that. my bishops always just sit around staring at my pawns.
Sep-19-08  computer chess guy: After 21. .. ♗xa3, Rybka likes 22. ♖xe6. Then if 22. fxe6, 23. ♖a1!. So best is 22. .. ♗xb2 23. ♕xb2 fxe6 and White is down a pawn by conventional material scoring, but Rybka still scores White ahead.
Jun-11-09  parmetd: Maybe even pun this game "I got a rusty bishop!"
Sep-26-10  sevenseaman: This is a much better Kasimdzhanov game than the one topping the collection.
