  kingscrusher: Fantastic game :)
Aug-13-13  Marmot PFL: The knight sac refutes 11...Qc7? but 11...Qe4 is probably OK.
Aug-13-13  babakova: I would be tempted to resign on the spot if someone played 12.Nxe6 against me.
Aug-13-13  capafan: Mr. Adams has been playing some incredible chess of late...he will be trouble for whomever he faces.

  HeMateMe: This is a nasty pasting. Adams in top form.
Aug-15-13  GlennOliver: Beautiful chess from Micky Adams.

His 2nd-round opponent, Yuriy Kryvoruchko, had a very solid win over the in-form Parimarjan Negi, so will be a stern test.

But Micky playing chess at the level of this game is a threat to anyone.

Aug-15-13  GlennOliver: P.S.
16. Nd4 is a sublime move
Aug-28-13  pericles of athens: 16. Nd4!
Apr-20-14  Cedroke: how come this hasnt been the game of the day yet?
Apr-22-14  luzhin: Yes, and it could have the heading "Wake me up wan yun guo guo."
