  An Englishman: Good Evening: Skip ahead to the position after 19...Qe8. Try to figure out how *that* Black pawn reached *that* square.

Trust me. You'll know which pawn I mean.

The entire game is a sacrificial orgy in which Vasiukov throws everything and the kitchen sink at Planinc. Really exciting game, and a good example why the Falkbeer Countergambit continues to fascinate.
