  Domdaniel: 8...c5? is a serious mistake, allowing 9.e5 and a 'little combination' from which Portisch emerges with Bishop and Knight against Rook and pawn (along with most of the other pieces still on the board).

The downside to this exchange - nominally equal, but rarely good for the Rook - is soon clear. The missing pawn provides an open line, and the B+N-vs-R piece balance effectively gives White an extra piece, which he can sacrifice happily. And *does*, with another little combination starting with 20.h4! and 22.Nxh6!.

Obviously, Black loses his Queen if he takes the 2nd Knight offer - 22.Nxh6 Kxh6 23.Nxg5! fxg5?? 24.Bxg5+ etc. Instead, he has to give up the Rf7 and reach a lost ending.

A very *neat*, efficient win by White.

  FSR: Funny how Portisch forced Panno to give up two minor pieces for rook and pawn, then later himself gave up two minor pieces for rook and two pawns - thus winning a pawn in the entire extended transaction.
