Nov-10-07  erad1288: wild complications here! Is there a quick finish here? What am I missing because there are too many pieces left on the board to resign. I mean white's king does look too safe to me, nor is black's, but I see plenty of chances for both sides. Does anyone know why Polgar resigned here?
Nov-11-07  Kaspablanca: Black to move and is in check. If black plays 36.. Kc5 37. Na4+ winning the queen. But if black moves 36...Nd3 covering the check white plays 37. Rd8+ a mortal check, if black plays then Ke7 white respond with Qxc7 winning the rook but if then moves Kc6 procteting the rook white respond with Bf3+ with decisive advantage for white.
Nov-11-07  SetNoEscapeOn: wild game....
Nov-13-07  lentil: erad: White's rook up.

Also, the last few moves have the look of a time-scramble... 32..Kd6?!?

Dec-18-07  AnotherNN: Can't understand why at move 24, RP didn't play 24. Q-h7+, followed by 25.B-h5+. Would have gotten him the exchange at least.
Dec-19-07  Cyphelium: <AnotherNN> He won an exchange the way he played too, and his initiative was still there as well.
Mar-13-08  positionalgenius: Great game...
