Sep-01-04  suenteus po 147: 30. Rg2 is a VERY subtle move as it sets up the mate without giving that information away. It looks like what it is: an attack on the passed pawn. I find many grandmasters, like Fischer, Spassky, and Petrosian, make moves like this one that are subtle. They are subtle, not because they are sneaky, but because they are moves that accomplish two things at once. That is one of the best kinds of moves to make!
Jan-26-07  Themofro: A very fascinating game not just because of the quality but by how strong the adjacent sets of doubled pawns turn out to be.
