Nov-26-08  shintaro go: Lagrave didn't know what hit him. Systematic destruction by Fabiano.
Nov-28-08  computer chess guy: 24. g6 is plenty good enough, but White could also have played 24. ♖xe6! fxe6 25. ♗xe6. Then 25. .. ♗xe6 is not possible because of mate in 3 starting with ♖xd7+, and 25. .. ♖gf8 26. ♕d4+ ♔g6 27. ♗xd5 is also hopeless for Black.
Apr-06-10  James Bowman: Very nice game by Fabiano he was dictating the game from the get, always stealing the tempo.
Sep-19-16  RKnight: I stared at the final position trying to think of exactly how Fabiano would administer the coup-de-grace after 29...Rxd7, then the duh! moment came, promoting allows Qe6+. Specifically: 29... Rxd7, 30. f8(=Q) Rxf8, 31. Qe6+ Kd1, 32.Qxd2#
