  iking: fearless combatants
Apr-19-14  Prugno: Absolutely unbelievable stuff. Plenty of beautiful ideas still being discovered in the classical Open games, I would say...
Apr-19-14  mrbasso: Computer preparation from start to finish. In a previous Amateur game 11.c5 was played but both players Computers have discovered 11.c5 Bxf1 12.cxb6 f5! with equality. So it's llogical to analyse the alternative 11.Bf4 and the rest of the game is the mainline of Stockfish.

  Eyal: The number of entertaining sidelines here is huge. For example, if White tries 19.Qxa8 (instead of Na4+) then 19...Qxc3+! 20.Kxc3 Bg7+ followed by Rxa8 with advantage to Black. Or if 19.Be3 c5 20.Rxf1 Qxf1 21.Qxa8:

with Nd5+ being a massive threat, Black can still save himself by 21...Qxf2+!! 22.Kd1 (22.Bxf2 Bh6+ followed by Rxa8 and Black wins; 22.Kd3 Qxe3+! with the same idea) 22...Qf1+ 23.Kd2 (23.Kc2 Qf5+, gaining an important tempo for bringing the queen to d7 to stabilize the position) 23...Qf2+ and White has to allow perpetual check.
