Feb-09-09  luzhin: A lovely sacrificial finish from Raafi Persitz, who died this week. Hooper's failure to play 22...Nc4+ must have rested on the fact that he missed 24.Qe6+!!
Feb-11-09  luzhin: There's more: if Hooper had tried 23...Qg2+, then the winning line is the wonderful 24.Kxe5 Rxg5 25.Rfe1 Rxf5+ 26.Kxf5 discovered check!!

  GrahamClayton: Black looks like he has White on the run, then bang-bang - White mates!
Aug-15-11  MartijnvanWingerden: I find that 5... Bb5 also deserves a !. Black sacrafices a Knight too get it back 7 moves later. Nice calculation.
