  elohah: You know, this is a REALLY instructive game, with great technique by Black.

I've said before that I think Ponomariov of the modern crop of players most resembles Bobby in his playing approach. But Boris Gelfand is also a very thematic player who knows his openings extremely well.

And remember kids:

A player who defends well, seldom blunders, and attacks precisely is tough.
