Jul-07-05  Rolandoarango: What a Game!! And, What a Knight! This is a wounderfull game, but not is knowd because was played in a minor tournament. However, both players was intermitently brilliant (Cuéllar won splendid games to: Geller, Reschevsky, Korchnoi, Szabo), and Cuartas won to: Portisch, Hook, Beliavsky --an interesting game; and he drew with Spassky.
Feb-16-10  chillowack: I agree this was a very well-played game by Cuartas. While the initial rook sacrifice involved little risk (White always had a draw in hand) and Black erred with 30...d5? (which allowed the white knight to join the attack), the move 33.Ne6! was very skillfully played.

The point (which took me some time to figure out) is that the obvious 33...Re6 is answered by 34.Rg7! and Black must give up an enormous amount of material to survive.

The best I see for Black is 34...Bc5 35.bc Qc5 36.Qh8+ Qf8 37.Rg8 Ke7, when White has a queen and two passed pawns vs. two rooks--almost certainly a win for White.
