  An Englishman: Good Evening: One of Seirawan's lesser-known gems. Black's next three moves will be 41...Qxa2+, 42...Qxb3+ and 43...Nd3+.

I like how Black beats back White's probes on both sides of the board while advancing his own at the same time (21...Qc6 sidesteps the pin; 25...Bd6 pins the f-pawn to the Knight). Also, in the Caro-Kann, Black rarely established a passed e-pawn, as here.

Marjanovic's errors are not obvious at first glance; he must have been baffled by the slow decline in his game.

May-20-06  Longbrow: Thank you < An Englishman > This type of movement and stubborn tempo are exactly the things I need to see
Jul-02-07  PizzatheHut: Fascinating game, I can't believe how well Seirawan played the game throughout. I've been playing over it several times trying to figure out what is going on. Black's pieces are working together flawlessly and as <An Englishman> mentioned, Seirawan seems to combine both attack and defense with nearly every move. I think this game deserves careful study, it is a wonderful positional game.
Jul-02-07  sanyas: <An Englishman> 41.♔c2 ♕xa2+ 42.♔c3 (42.♔c1 ♘xb3+ 43.♔d1 ♕b1#) 42...♕xe2 and mate soon.
