Aug-19-07  sanyas: 500 Master Games of Chess gives this as taking place in Wiesbaden. Apparently this game was instrumental in showing that an extended pawn center can be weak.

  whiteshark: <sanyas> Instead of playing <13. Bxg4> white is sacrifying a piece to get a strong center.
Aug-19-07  sanyas: Is the center really as strong as it looks? Black won, after all. I read your profile. A good piece of general advice.
May-31-08  Xeroxx: for some reason I dont like the g2-g4-gxh5 idea.

Nice benoni from Uhhrrv-ve.

May-23-13  Cemoblanca: Great game by "The Doctor".

There's an ultra-provocative play by Fischer VS Letelier, Leipzig Olympiad 1960: 4...0-0 5.e5 Ne8 6.f4 d6! 7.Be3 c5! 8.dxc5 Nc6 with excellent counterplay.
