Oct-12-03  morphynoman2: Tim Harding, about this opening:
"Avoiding the perpetual by 12...Kc8?! was once advocated by Pachman but now may be refuted. White plays 13 Qxe6+ (not 13 Bxc4? Nxg5 Vidmar-Mikenas, Prague 1931) 13...Nd7 14 Qxd7+! (14 Nxd7 Bxc3+ 15 bxc3 Qxc3+ 16 Ke2 Nxg5! 17 Nb6+ Kc7 18 Nxa8+ Kb8! Troianescu) 14...Qxd7 15 Nxd7 Nxc3 16 bxc3 (16 Bd2 Re8+ Taimanov) 16...Bxc3+ 17 Kd1 Bxa1 18 Nc5! b6 19 Ne6 b5 20 Be2. A draw was agreed here in Ehlvest-T.Petrosian, Tallinn 1983, but 20...a6? 21 Rf1! h6 22 Bh4 Kd7 23 Nc5+ Kd6 24 Nb7+ Ke5 25 Bg3+ Ke6 (25...Kd4 26 Kc2 Rae8 27 Rd1+ Ke3 28 Rxa1+- Sosonko) 26 Bg4+ Ke7 27 Bd6+ Ke8 28 Bh5+ Kd7 29 Re1 1-0 was Sosonko-Torre, Tilburg 1982. Markov & Schipkov's book on the Slav suggests 20...Bf6.

  OlimpBase: What a game! It should have become famous, shouldn't it?!
Jan-03-13  computer chess guy: 12. .. Nxg5+ is the line that leads to a perpetual check, after 13. Qxg7 Bxc3+ 14. bxc3 Qxc3+ 15. Ke2 Qc2+. 12. .. Kc8 13. Qxe6+ as mentioned by Harding is probably also a draw but more complex. If White wants more chances he should vary earlier with 10. Bd2.
