  markbstephenson: This game is annotated in detail by John Nunn in his 2001 book, Understanding Chess Move by Move.
Jan-07-11  sevenseaman: Khalifman never releases the pressure, giving not a moment's respite to Sveshnikov who is forced to cede his Q. Annotations could be very interesting.
Apr-12-22  DaviesNjugunah: this game is a good illustration on how to attack if your opponent delays castling
