  offramp: White plays specifically to prevent ...b5. His socks must have blown off when black sallied forth with 18...b5. Nervously, he takes the pawn en passant - what infernal trap is he falling in to? The answer? Nothing.

Having lost this pawn black plays va banque, but the banque is shut. When the lights in the playing hall are turned off he is still sitting at the board, staring at the position before 18...b5.

Aug-06-13  apple scruffs: Nice pun, but the Shakespearean phrase is "hoist with his own petard" and I'd have preferred that. For one of the games in his <My 60 Memorable Games>, Fischer uses exactly that phrase.
Aug-06-13  Tomlinsky: "Shakespeare's use of "petar" (flatulate) rather than "petard" may be an off-colour pun."

  kevin86: White's doubled pawns on the b file turn out to be more of an asset than a liability.
Aug-06-13  Abdel Irada: Black's counterplay briefly looked promising, but it soon petard out.
