Dec-03-13  Ed Frank: 24. ...Rd3 is such an awesome tactic complimented by this game's earlier queen sacrifice. What a win for Akobian.
Dec-03-13  Shams: Wow. Very fancy! The rook spree amazes.
Dec-04-13  SirRuthless: Very sexy finish and great guts in general playing this way. There was a ridiculous computer line black to play 13...Qc8 and win but Varuzhan played it smartly and safe giving up his Q for on the surface, only two minors. What he really got was a rook possessed tear assing through whites position, a fixed pawn structure and enough material to win. What a rich game. From the PETROV?
