Mar-01-04  TrueFiendish: Go, patzer punters! 25.Rd8!--the saving resource. I wonder if black saw it or thought he was winning...

  kevin86: Black threatened 25... ♖xa1 26 ♗xa1 ♖e1 forcing mate;the brilliant pin 25 ♖d8 saves the game. It is a virtual dead draw after the exchanges
Mar-01-04  mack: I was involved in this game as a "patzer punter", got to say it wasn't the most exciting Marshall Attack game ever.
Mar-01-04  InspiredByMorphy: Admirable attacking bravery by black. The sacrifice of the bishop on move 18.f4?! is compensated 7 moves later, but I question its soundness. I will look into this more later.
Nov-18-04  TheTurk: seems inspiredbymorphy has been looking into this one for over 8 months now. i hope he came up with something interesting...
Nov-19-04  aw1988: LOL, good timing.
Feb-17-06  vizir: today it is very easy to draw THE WORLD :-)

"Thank you very much Anand"

(since the beautiful Ponomariov Anand 2002
the line 15. Qe2 is considerer as draw)

Jan-09-08  D.Observer: Who offered a draw?
Jul-26-08  offtherook: I think 21 <Qxh3>, aiming to transpose into the regular boring theory where this is an easy draw, might have been safer/easier for white.
Jul-26-08  Bobsterman3000: I remember this game. It was The World that offered the draw.

25. Rd8!! was a good move, but I would expect it to be found easily amongst the hundreds of engine users involved in this game...

Jul-26-08  offtherook: Well, from what I've read, <16 Qe2> has been regarded as a forced draw since about 2002, so it seems the World chose at that point to draw the game.
Jan-21-09  WhiteRook48: the whole World can only draw against this person.
Jan-22-09  RandomVisitor: After 22...Re1

Mar-16-09  WhiteRook48: 25 Rd8 is a timely deflection
Apr-06-11  Helloween: 23.h3~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Premium Chessgames Member
  Check It Out: 23.h3 seems to lead to a draw as well. What's your point, <helloween>?
Apr-06-11  Helloween: I remember following the updates on this game on chessbase back in 2004 and I suggested 23.h3, because I did not see 25.Rd8! in the main continuation.

I believed at the time there were nice complications arising from 23.h3 fxg3!?, although I don't have a program to check the tactical validity of that now.
