Jan-23-05  azaris: Shades of brilliance from Petrosian. 23...cxd5 24. Rxc8 Rxc8 25. Rxc8+ Qxc8 26. Qd4 f6 27. Qxd5+ Kg7 28. Qxe4 collects the material back with interest.
Jul-09-09  ToTheDeath: Beautiful positional play against the hanging pawns and a pretty "petit combination" to wrap up the game.
