Mar-26-09  AnalyzeThis: For some reason, black thought that the only thing he should do in this middlegame was shuttle his knight between c4 and b2. Needless to say, it didn't work out for him.

  GrahamClayton: 10.♗e2 is a much better move than 10.♗d3, as Yusupov needs to mobilise his d-pawn, which he does with 12.d5. The d-pawn is more dangerous than Ribli's queenside pawn majority, plus Yusupov has a spatial advantage as well.

  zydeco: When playing 27...Bxc6, Ribli may have calculated as far as 31....Nd3 32.Rxc3? Nxf4 33.Bxa8 Ne2+ 34.K moves Nxc3 when black has a better endgame.

And if 33.Rf3 Ne2+ 34.Kf1 Re8

But after 32.Qxf7+! Kxf7 33.Rxc3 black can't defend both rook and knight.

Sep-13-16  maseras: why not 23.Rfd1?
Sep-13-16  Retireborn: <maseras> After 23.Rfd1 Black replies 23...Rac8 and it's not clear what White should do next.

After 23.Rfe1 Rac8 is met by 24.Re7! winning as Black can't protect both f7 and the Bd7.

Aug-24-18  fleuret: After 28.dxc6 White threat 29.Rxe8+ Rxe8 30.c7 Rc8 31.Bf5
