Nov-23-05  notyetagm: 16 ... ♘b4!! is a great example of the tactical theme that <one defender cannot keep out two attackers>. Here the White a3-pawn defends the b4-square from the Black c6-knight and e7-bishop so it cannot keep both of them out of b4. Nigel sacrifices his knight on b4 to this defending pawn (18 px♘) so that he can take the square with his bishop (18 ... ♗b4+), creating a winning attack.
Nov-23-05  notyetagm: The two exclamation points for 16 ... ♘b4!! are from Dr. Nunn in his 101 Brilliant Chess Miniatures book. This move is a brilliant refutation of an unsound combination by Seirawan.

Nov-01-18  SpiritedReposte: <16. ...Nb4!> Shunning the recapture. What a move to find.

A hidden gem that needs some exposure.

Nov-01-18  Howard: If I remember correctly, either Gina or Ben Finegold called this game the "Game of the Year" (so far) in CL magazine.
Nov-01-18  Granny O Doul: I sure hope it was Ben. For the sake of Chess Life.
