I wonder why this <AVERBAKH GAMBIT> against the Nimzo Indian Leningrad was not in EVERYMANCHESS' "Dangerous Weapons: Nimzo Indian"?

  whiteshark: WOW!!! Threat is <26...Nb1+ 27.Rxb1 Ra2#> You haven't seen it often Korchnoi got beaten like this.

  profK: What a walloping...Never had anyone play the Lenningrad against my humble Nimzos though!! I'll keep this gambit in mind.
Apr-26-12  King Death: <profK> Check out this battle between two world champs where White accepts the pawn (Spassky vs Tal, 1973). In the kibitzes <Everett> mentions an idea that may be good for White though.
Apr-27-12  LoveThatJoker: Nice game by Djurasevic!


May-07-15  A.T PhoneHome: Mr. Djurasevic took no prisoners here! Very intense play by him, culminating in a powerful attack.

Maybe GOTD material?

Jun-12-16  say it with a smile: Djurasevic demolishes Korchnoi with an
all out intense attack. 20. .. Re8!!
