Jul-26-02  morphynoman: What a fantastic game! Obsviously 46. Kc5?? is a blunder. I suppose 46. Kc3 must be a draw (perpetual check). Maybe white wins with 44. Qe5+ Kg8 45. c8Q! and the king escapes the perpetual by c4 and d5
Sep-08-05  aw1988: Absolutely wild. Play this with the result turned off.
Dec-03-05  makaveli52: wild game, why protect your pieces when u can just attack ur opponents pieces?
Dec-03-05  Devilz: Yay for queens.
Dec-03-05  Hidden Skillz: absolutely great game

  kevin86: This game reminds me of the basketball game where Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 and his Philly team won 169-147. No defense at all!
Dec-03-05  dakgootje: one of the better games ive seen so far: dont worry about being mated...just mate your opponent faster...;-)
Dec-03-05  Saruman: 46.Kc5 was a blunder. 46.Kc3 Qg7+ and black can only hope for a draw.
Dec-03-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Great game! What a shame about that blunder move. This could have been one of those exciting draws.
Dec-03-05  weisyschwarz: Good game. The two grandmasters played with a stiff upper lip, treating the moves of the other with disregard. Especially Bareev. I was waiting for Smirin to play one upmanship by getting his other knight on the b-file too (18...Nd7, 19...Nb6).
Dec-03-05  itz2000: could have been much greater with draw ending :(


Dec-03-05  samikd: I am especially sad because I love this Bayonette attack against the Kings Indian. Bareev must have learned it from his friend Kramnik
Dec-03-05  soberknight: The real shocker in this game was 28...d5!! It looked totally pointless until I saw that it cut off the White queen from g2. If 29 Qxa6? Qg4+ 30 Kf1 Qh4 and Black mates (31 Re2 Qh1). As it stands, after 29 c6! Qg4+ 30 Kf1 Black cannot play 30...Qh4 because he would lose both rooks.
Jul-14-07  Kublo: what a pity to waist a nice game with a blunder like 46.Kc5??
Nov-24-10  sevenseaman: Bareev's reactions are conditioned by terror of an impending loss.
Sep-15-16  wilfredo munoz: Wasn't there time pressure involved in 46 ... Kc5?
