Mar-08-04  d4Nf6Bg5: Isn't the pierce gambit refuted?
Mar-08-04  d4Nf6Bg5: Antunes doesn't seem like such a great player.
Mar-08-04  tino72: Antunes is a Portuguese GM. I am not good enough to comment knowledgeably on his play in this game, but his opponent, Paul Motwani, was the first Scottish player ever to gain the GM title. He is well known for his attacking style of play, and he has produced many entertaining games - such as this one. The Vienna Opening with 3.f4 was a favourite weapon of his a few years ago.
Nov-26-08  Poisonpawns: Antunes was 2465 at the time Motwani 2655
May-04-18  Sally Simpson: Paul had a practise run for this game.
