Jan-17-07  Themofro: Great judgement shown by Danielson in recognizing that his king can escape.
Jun-16-10  Atking: Well the draw is obvious for Black 18...Qb4+ 19.Ka1 Qa5+
Jun-24-10  Atking: Maybe 14.BxNc6!? Give up a Bishop pair is never an easy matter but 14...QxB 15.0-0 (~ 16.e4)looks playable as 15...Bb6+ 16.e3 defends and 15...BxN 16.QxB QxQ 17.bxQ Bxe2 18.Rxf6 white is still pawn up and white N is as good (bad) as black B.

  GrahamClayton: I don't think that Vea counted on 20. c4!, and his exchange sacrifice with 20..♖xd5 comes up short.
Jun-07-13  MoonlitKnight: I remember this game very well. When you're 2085 you should probably take the draw with black against a GM on move 18, but my friend instantly decided to play on. :-)

After 20...Rxd5 21.Bxd5 there is still a draw with 21...Nc3+ 22.Kc2 Qa2+!, but this time less obvious.
