Feb-06-07  tatarch: Wow, great attack--I think this game is one of the better examples I've seen of the adage "If you find a good move, look for a better one!"
Feb-06-07  sambo: Isn't 16. f5 a huge blunder? I mean, I understand sacrificing a pawn for initiative, but white has no initiative afterwards- or at least doesn't try awfully hard, making only one offensive move (17. Bh6). Furthermore, couldn't black make it even worse on white, eg. 17...Bg5+ 18. Bxg5 Qxg5+ 19. Kb1 Qxg2? Thoughts?
Dec-16-11  sleepyirv: 16. F5 is a blunder but White got into a pretty ugly position By the 16th move, Black's queenside attack pretty much writes itself. Rook to b8, Queen to a5, the Dragon bishop gets back to the a1 diagonal and White ain't going to survive that. Desperation move are never fun- so don't get into desperate situations!
Dec-08-16  Saniyat24: 16. Nc5 is an option.
