  GrahamClayton: I like the way that 21...♘e1+ covers the c2 square, as well as the visual effect of putting a piece on the 8th rank!
Feb-17-11  BishopsPawn: I think you could almost get an entire week's worth of puzzles out of this one! What fun!

What a magnificent game courtesy of GM Nevostrujev!

May-28-12  LIFE Master AJ: An unbelievably complicated game ...
Jun-22-12  dumbgai: I am currently analyzing this game with Stockfish 2.1.1, which has white up +1.61 after 15...Nc6 (depth=25). 16. Qc7 is the first move Stockfish doesn't like (up until now Riazantsev had been matching the engine's top moves; Stockfish prefers 16. Qb6). 17. Bh6 is the losing move according to the engine, which gives 17. Bd6 Nd3+ 18. Kd1 Bb5 19. Nc1 as leading to a small advantage for white.
Jun-26-12  GilesFarnaby: Exploiting the awkward Bg5 (and, hence, the b2 weakness) Nevostrujev gets a Benko-gambit-like position, with the important difference that white's K-side is underdeveloped and the minor nuisance that black has no Q.

I up this game in case someone is foolish enough not to know it, as I did 5 minutes ago.

Jun-28-12  sambo: 13 Rc1 looks much better to me. White loses in the text because he's strangled by his kingside. Rc1 allows Nf3 after Bxc1, so the knight is on Nf3 rather than Ne2, and there is much more space.

Still not an ideal position for white, but at first glance it strikes me as more even.

Jul-18-12  himadri: Mighty nights!
Nov-09-12  morfishine: White is better served with <11.Bxf6>

Thanks for the computer input. One can certainly not fault White for being bamboozled here.

Beautiful game.

Oct-09-13  docbenway: Head spinning tactics, somebody ate their Wheaties that day.
Jul-07-14  Gottschalk: 16.f3 maybe the last chance.
Jul-07-14  Rookiepawn: I don't understand the opening. Seems like some Benoni / Benko / Blumenfeld gambit. Isn't 7. e4 better for White as it lets the DSB go back to d2, besides occupying the center?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: What a shocking game. At first, I thought 11...Nxe4 was a misprint.
Oct-05-14  morfishine: If I didn't know who was playing Black, I'd guess NEZHMETDINOV Rashid Gibiatovich Nezhmetdinov

  piltdown man: A pun which suits the game perfectlu.
Oct-05-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: Looks to me like a fairly pure Benko gambit, transpositions notwithstanding.

That said, White's line didn't work very well for him ...

Oct-05-14  newhampshireboy: Seriously speaking, most of this game flew way over my chess amateur's head. I have played through many master games in my time and usually could comprehend some of them after some thought but this game made me dizzy! I will download the PGN and try to deal with it later if I live long enough. I am 65!
Oct-05-14  newhampshireboy: I forgot to mention black's wonderful use of his knights. Beautiful!

  kevin86: White's knight cannot take and black's rook mates next move! Wouldn't the knight be "horse de combat"?
Oct-06-14  paavoh: Looks like one of my puns, posted ages ago, got selected?! I am beginning to feel there are not too many suggestions for the GOTD puns....
Nov-16-14  SpiritedReposte: Sharp game.
