Apr-04-08  percyblakeney: Nice game by Grischuk against recent Moscow Open winner Timofeev, for example 11. Nxf7 and 21. Rxa6 are worth a closer look.
Apr-04-08  sallom89: nice game? excellent game! that sac is wonderful, each time i use it i win and sometimes i wonder is it because my opponent gets shakey & scared and cant play well or its strong to expose the king for a piece.

Grischuk played perfectly here :O
thanks for bringing this game up <percyblakeney>.

  fredthebear: White's double knight sacrifice does not even begin to explain this devil-may-care gallivant. Meanwhile, the Black Nbd7 has foundered.
