Nov-03-07  Jaburu: 19 ...Rc8 allows the beautiful "petite combinaison" to gain the black pawn a5 that begin with 20. Qd3!! The concept of "petite combinaison" is in the top of the elite practice as one of your more notables secrets.

  Shams: <Jaburu> interesting. I see that the threat of Nxh7 wins the a-pawn, but what I don't get is why black couldn't play 19...Qf5, hitting the knight and grabbing a crucial diagonal.

  zydeco: 19....Qf5 looks better than Rc8 and 21....Qa7 looks much better than Ne6 (maybe Flohr preferred to lose the a-pawn than deal with white's activity after 22.e6. It's interesting how averse strong players are to passive positions even when the passive position is probably their best option: Flohr gives away the farm with 22.....Ra8 rather than just try to hang on to the c6 pawn.
