  An Englishman: Good Evening: As you know, I am not a fan of the Albin Countergambit, but I will concede this--beating this opening will sometimes require tremendous imagination. Milov must have had Renet's head spinning by the time this was over.

And I have no idea how much of the play was sound--for either player.

Oct-10-06  vizir: in two days I start taking lessons with Olivier Renet I guess it's gonna be fun :-DDD
Oct-10-06  Confuse: musta been a pain for black at the end, if white promoted one move later he would have had a really cool mate. but clearly white thought that out. nice game.
Oct-10-06  aragorn69: WOW! Fun game. Have no idea either what about it is sound... Too lazy to analyse now: somebody with an engine??
Oct-10-06  kellmano: That was an awesome game. All over the place. One of the many reasons to lpay the albin, even though black lost.

Oct-10-06  kevin86: I liked this one! After being imprisoned-under protective custody-by black's pieces,the white king travels quite a bit.

The hero of this tale is the old,lonely,often forgotten queen rook's pawn. Today,he pulls an excelcior act by going from a2-a8 in just five moves!! (sorry,if I subjected you to an avalanche of adjectives,lol)

Oct-10-06  kelu: 35. a5+ !
Oct-10-06  lvlaple: There are some phenomenal moves here. An incredible game. I think everyone on the site should see this one.
Aug-01-07  bpdoc: Why is this game over? 39...Rxa8 40 Rxa8 (40 Bxf7 Rxa1 41 Rxa1 Ne5+, forking the bishop) Bxd5 41 Ra1 Ne5+ 42 Kh5 Nd3, forking a couple pawns, and its a close game, right?

Aug-02-07  ALEXIN: I like this wild game !
Oct-07-07  syracrophy: <bpdoc> 39...♖xa8 40.♗xc6+ ♔xc6 41.♖xa8 and White is two exchanges up and has a lot of pawns of advantage. A very very easy won game
Feb-18-09  WhiteRook48: crazy endgame.

  plang: 7 0-0 is the main kine; here Milov chooses the rarely played 7 Qb3. 8 Bd2 was a new move that has not been repeated; 8 0-0 had been played several times previously. Milov was sceptical of 11..Qh5?! recommending 11..Qxe5 12 Nb5..Kb8 13 0-0 with some edge for White.
