Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-08  Xeroxx: He should probably gone for 16.Qxe6
Nov-22-08  Eyal: <He should probably gone for 16.Qxe6> Either that or 16.Rhe1, or even 16.Rxd7 Qxd7 17.fxe5 (when the knight on f6 cannot retreat, because of a lethal rook check on f1). After 16.fxe5? Nxe5, however, White's attack is just completely liquidated. 18.Rd5 is the kind of move on which Steinitz said: "An unsound combinaiton, however beautiful, feels me with horror".
Nov-22-08  Catholic Bishop: i vote 18.Rd5 for best looking crap move of 2008

wang hao is a legend. when he has to go down he does so without neglecting to flash 'deze nutz'

Nov-22-08  shintaro go: Talk about a disaster. Wang Hao must have been high when played this game
Nov-22-08  shintaro go:, please make this a game of the day. May I suggest this pun: Wang - Hai. Please, this game deserves it.

  Phony Benoni: Love that last move. 21.Bxf4 Qxh3, and either recapture costs White a full rook.
Apr-05-11  Shams: 13.Qh3??
Is it possible Wang Hao doesn't know the book trap here? 13.Nxe6! gives white a huge game.
