I can't really agree, as the absolute quality of the game is quite low - White had a crushing position out of the opening, and then played a series of incomprehensible mistakes crowned by a blunder missing a simple tactic! Shocked In fact, knowing that Ernst is a strong player I would assume he must have been in severe time-trouble to play so weakly. Embarrassed
Of course, this is only my opinion, and tastes differ, what do others think of the respective merits of the games?

Personally, if we had a choice of all the games in there, I would have gone with the "Ernst - Brynell" game.   I'm a big fan of playing cramped positions, and Brynell did an excellent job to get out of it, and then on top of that, off of a couple of mistakes by White (Nxe8 and Kh2), he goes on to win the game, and that would be my vote over the 5 given.

Hi everyone, we were waiting for the March d-Pawn Specials update, but as this still hasn't come, here is a list of 5 games to choose from.
We can add more if anyone thinks a great game has been left out!
Anyway, Kasparov will be pleased!
