Oct-15-04  fgh: Nice kingside attack by Kasparov.
Dec-16-04  OneArmedScissor: 24. ...Kg8 25. Bf6 and he game is over.
Feb-19-05  yoozum: The game was over very soon because Kasparov just nabbed a pawn in the very beginning.
Nov-13-05  azaris: What a strange gambit.

  keypusher: <What a strange gambit.> It's not a gambit, it's <oh-@$*#&%!-i'm-losing-a-pawn-now-what>. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 Bg4 is another form of this unsuccessful but surprisingly popular debut.
Oct-16-09  hedgeh0g: Yep. The number of NNs and simul players who go in for this pawn sac line is incredible.
