  KingG: Absolutely brilliant! I love these e5, f5 combinations in the Benoni. I bet 22.Nxe5! came as a shock.

Feb-09-18  cunctatorg: OK but I have to point out that people around avoid to comment on this game...

Explanation/interpretation: they can't understand (by themselves) what happened in that chessboard and they are ashamed to ask their silicon trainer/analyst!! It's "chessically" correct to ask that monster regarding a game of Fischer, Korchnoi, Karpov, Kasparov or some World Champion but to ask that monster about a game of a certain GM Boris Gulko vs. some GM named Vladimir Savon is outrageous and shameful!!

Well, I have to admit that I understand what had happened in that chessboard back in 1978 in a much lesser measure than a GM named Savon had understood during that game... Isn't shameful?!?
