Feb-18-08  Knight13: This game's complete chaos from beginning til the end. After 19...O-O-O the board's WIDE OPEN and something tells me 16...Nh3+ first is better than 16...Rf8.
Oct-05-11  Kasparovsky5: 25. ...,Rd-f8. 26.a4,e5. 27.Bxb7+,Kxb7. 28.a5,e4 29.axb6,a6. 30.Qd5 ,exf3. 31.bxc7+,Ka8 (...,Kc8. 32.Rb8+!!,Nxb8. 33.cxb8=R mate). 32.Qxd7,Ne7. 33.c8=Q+!!,Rxc8. 34.Qb7 mate. This is a good argument for Zukertort's: 25. ...,Rxg3 (which didn't save him either).
