Oct-13-13  apctguy: This game should easily win the Brilliancy prize of the entire tournament!! Yes it is like a game from Paul Morphy..18. Re6 is a genius level..ultra super GM move. Then to be followed up with another piece sacrifice !! 19. Ng7 . Kosteniuk is playing very high quality chess lately.

Kosteniuk is very well prepared in the openings. Black apparently tried to surprise white by going for this rare 12... ♕a4 line but didn't prepare it well enough and probably didn't know or forgot these previous games :

B Bok vs Seirawan, 2010 (Yasser didn't take the rook on e6 because the ♘xg7 sac would come all the same)

Fedorchuk,S (2571) - Cyborowski,L (2537), 2005 :
