Sep-08-06  capablancakarpov: Another fabulous Latvian Gambit counterattack! Black´s combination is one of the more beautiful that i´ve seen in my life.
Feb-16-07  Laci: Fabulous? I do not know. I would not have put this game into the database. Black obviously could win just because of the inferior play of white. Who can explaine 12.Kd1? Why not the simple 12.dxe4? Then there is no more perspective for black. For instance 12. - Ff5 and then both Ng5 or Nc3 (or even Na3) are good enough. Black can resign...
