|Oct-07-09|| ||GrahamClayton: The power of a pin! (or two....)|
|Mar-24-16|| ||al wazir: I think 15...f5 was the losing move. At any rate, I always lose when I play moves like that.|
What's wrong with 15. Ndxb5 Rd7 16. Qc4 ? After, e.g., 16...Rxd1+ 17. Nxd1 Bb7 18. Nc7+ Kd7/Kd8 (18...Ke7 19. Qb4+, winning the ♗) 19. Rxf7. White is a ♙ up, black's ♙s are weak and his ♔ is awkwardly placed.

|Mar-24-16|| ||Razgriz: I had to check the date to make sure that I wasn't watching Romantic-Era Chess unfolding before my eyes.|
|Mar-24-16|| ||morfishine: Hellacious attack|
|Mar-24-16|| ||Once: Fritzie thinks that black starts to go seriously wrong with the sequence 21...Qh6, 22...Nb6 and 23...Nc4. But with a king trapped in the middle it's hard to suggest alternatives. |
Very impressive attack by Lev. A crush.
|Mar-24-16|| ||morfishine: <Once> Lev Lost|
|Mar-24-16|| ||Once: Ach, details, details!
Very impressive attack by <the guy sitting opposite> Lev.
That's what I meant to say. Sort of.
|Mar-24-16|| ||kevin86: Black position is crushed and pinned by enemy forces. He is doomed!|
|Mar-24-16|| ||catlover: <al wazir> 15.Ndxb5 looks like another line that gives white pressure against black's position. |
I guess it was no surprise that Polugaevsky played the Polugaevsky variation, but this game isn't a great advertisement for that variation. Looks risky.

That is brilliant!
|Jan-28-18|| ||aberdeengrad: I must be missing something. Is there something wrong with 24...Bxd6?|
|Jan-28-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: aberdengrad: 25. QxK (Watch the corners, Agent Starling, now you're dead!)|
|Jan-28-18|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: <CHC>--After 24..Bxd6, the white queen is on f6 and the king is not in check. 24..Bxd6 loses to 25 Bc6+ followed by Rxe6+.|
|Jan-28-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: <GSM> Good point, I was a move behind (And that's why I'm dead!)|
