|Sep-23-05|| ||THE pawn: Oh my god, no kibitzing on this amazing game! This is ruy lopez at its best, this...wow! it has all a teacher would want when showing a game to a student, this is the perfect exemple of precise play, a true chess orgasm!|
This marvelous game starts with 9.h3!, slowing devloppment for clear protection then an awsome queenside attack begins with 12.a4 then c4, but portisch defends well with 14...Ng6 and c6 after comes 23.Nf5! and 26.Qd2!
I'm not surprised of Lajos's defensive counterplay with the strange 28.f6 move. At first it looks like a blunder, but realizing: (if portisch plays Re7 for defense then follows 29.f6! Rc7 Rxc7 Qxc7 Qg5 g6 Qh6 and next =mate.)
Then comes the crème of the crème of all moves 35.f3!! Not exactly the sort of move you're looking for in that type of position, but it's all logical, in case of and endgame.

|Jun-30-07|| ||THE pawn: I was probably drunk when I wrote my first post, 9.h3 is all theory hahaha! same for moves 12 and 14.|
|Sep-29-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 43....Bc4 I don't get i|
|Oct-12-10|| ||meppi: 43 Bc4 is probably an attempt to create a passed pawn and counterplay.|

45 h8, and 46 xh7+ surely?
