Aug-24-02  morphynoman2: 35. Rb5?? avoiding the draw, loses instantly. But I dont like black's ouverture, giving material without a concrete compensation.
Jan-09-03  TheOppositeOfChess: Without concrete compensation? her black bishop is like a laser beam on that board. I see nothing but compensation.

  Sneaky: <<I dont like black's ouverture>> do you mean 6...c5!? or her play much later?

The pawn sac with 6...c5 is very interesting. I find myself playing the White pieces against this idea a lot, and frankly I find it very bothersome.

This is a good stem game for the Opening Explorer for those interested in this sac.

Jan-09-03  morphynoman2: Karpov vs Ivanchuk in 1993 is a good example of my asertion. White conserves an extra pawn all game long, and black fights in vain for something. For me the good move is 14. Rb1
Feb-19-12  screwdriver: I take it the reason for resignation is because the black pawn on g3 would be too hard to stop from queening.

  Phony Benoni: <screwdriver> It's not just the g-pawn.

Black threatens mate in three: 42...Be3+ 43.Kf1 (43.Kh1 Rh2#) g2+ 44.Ke1 g1Q# (or 44...g1R#, if in the mood). Looks like 42.Rb3 is forced to stop this, when the ♘a7 falls.
