  GrahamClayton: 16.♖b1? is a careless move, leaving the Rook vulnerable to attack after 18...♕f5.
Apr-02-14  Albanius: 19 Ba3 Qf2+ 20 Kh1 Bf3 21 Rg1 Qg3 22 hg4 Qh3#
Jan-26-15  Albanius: This game is Smyslov's response to Uhlmann vs Smyslov, 1973 in which Smyslov got crushed after
11Nxd5 12 e4 Nb6 13 d4

But Kasparov vs Ivanchuk, 1988 improved for White with
11 d4! Ne4 12 Qc2 dxc4 13 Rb1 f5?! 14 g4!!

Jan-26-15  Albanius: in the 19 Ba3 line, if 22 Qxg4, then 22..Qxg4
23 hxg4 Rh6#
