Nov-04-03  ChessPraxis: Fine knight maneuvers by Akobian.
Nov-03-04  shakespeare918: I like the pawn storming to.I love a good pawn storm.Who dosent.besides the person who is getting beat by it.
Dec-29-04  myjourneytoGM: An instuctional game by Akobian. The immediate exchange of bad bishop, knights manouvers, and an exchange sacrafice. All while leaving Mulyar with little to do.
Jul-09-05  Brown: Knights just dominate the board here. He gives the exchange for not other material compensation and just walk through the Q-side.
Jul-09-05  farrooj: Pretty good exchange sacrifice. The Bishop was a lot more effective (scope wise) than the rook. With the bishop out, the pawn storm begins. Notice how the knights find the best posts in the white position, cramping everything
