Theo Papa : What bobby fisher had played? Could you please link me the video?

Jan van Erven : Rashid was the best!

sleepy55 : This is an unbelievable beautiful game. Rashid gives his queen without getting a direct mating attack and later he gives his rook and refuses to take the black rook and his position is getting better and better. I love that.

NoSystem : What a beast; love his games. He even looks scary. If I saw him sitting across a board from me, I'd say, "Thank you, but no," and leave.

ANON123 : Why is this so interesting I'm gonna sub to ya your work is great

David Badillo : It must be almost traumatic to be in the middle of your stroll 'with the draw in the bag' only to have your thoughts interrupted by the news "excuse me sir, your opponent just sacked his Queen"... a big bucket of cold water on your head!

David Alvarez : why did he sacrifice his knight for no reason? he didnt have to check his king and have the knight immediately captured after, if someone could explain this i will be so happy!!!
