  Benzol: <AdrianP> I think this game has a nice finish.

  AdrianP: <Benzol> Yeah, I like 24 ... fxg3! leaving the Q hanging but immune because of Rh1++, the same mating net as the finish.

Castling K-side 14 ... O-O was a brave decision and would seem to have been part of a fairly deeply calculated plan to gain control of the h-file.

B's opening is pretty indifferent, in my view, but that's not unusual for early games.

  Benzol: Neither Q-side nor K-side fianchetto defences were well understood at that time by the majority of players. A notable exception being Louis Paulsen.
