Feb-10-07  Ulhumbrus: <BadTemper: i dont understand that 15.d5 at all. someone pleaaaase help> At the very least, by opening the e file, 15 d5 causes Nf5 to be played with tempo because then after Nf5 the Be7 is attacked by a second piece- the Q e2- and not just by one, the N on f5. So as the Be7 is defended only once, Black has to spend a move on defending it. Now defending the bishop does something useful for the B, but if it does not also do something useful to defend against the threat of Nf5xh6+, it can be said to say "pass" with respect to doing something to defend against the threat of Nf5xh6+. So we can say that d5 has the eventual effect of making Black say "pass" with respect to doing something to defend against the threat of Nf5xh6+ following Nf5. However this effect of d5 does not show itself immediately, so it is less obvious than any effect of d5 which does show itself immediately.

  Gilmoy: This idea of <something>d5, deflecting e6 for Nf5, with a double on Be7 and K-side attack, is also thematic in Sicilian Najdorf, where White sometimes offers the 12.Nd5 sac, e.g. M Brodsky vs V Mudrov, 1995:

It doesn't win by force there, either (Black can accept, then defend with Kf8! Re8! Rg8!), but it tests Black's nerves and/or memorization.

Dec-15-08  eaglewing: Is 29. ... Ne4 the last error of Black?
Or could Black be saved even later? It seems to me 29. Ka4 Rb4+ 30. Ka3 Be5 31. Rb1 (Nd4 Bxd4 Rxd4 Rxd4) Reb8 should be fine for Black (give Nf6 for possible h6-h7). Or did I overlook something?

  whiteshark: Evgeny got a baad break.
Dec-15-08  Samagonka: Must have been painful for Bareev to loose this one after employing such sacrificial tactics.
Dec-15-08  chesskingqph: Should it be 32. Kb3 if 32... Nd4+?

  PinnedPiece: 22.Nf5! What a move. Great find. As a result, Black has to throw sand in the air trying to survive...it doesn't work.

Dec-15-08  WhiteRook48: Bareev went baad. Also wasn't Bareev that guy who lost to Karpov with 34. ... Ba7?????????
Dec-15-08  blueofnoon: They say Caro-Kann is the safe opening, but after seeing games like this I am not convinced.

  whiteshark: <PinnedPiece> Many thanks for the hint+link!!! I haven't realised it up until now.

<Read carefully> You mean there is a hidden code in the annoucement ??? :D

Oct-12-10  tommy boy: wow maybe taken from Running wild's "bad to the bone". Great game
Oct-12-10  bishop55: A very nice, artistic, Steinitz like finish.
Jan-16-11  Albertan: According to Jobava in New in Chess Magazine, every move he played in this game was preparation he had formulated at home before the game was even played!

  Goato: Having read the posts above I am not sure anyone really addressed what would happen after 15...Nxd5.

Glek vs J Willemze, 2003 saw 16.Ne4 Qb6 when white played 17.c4!? with just enough compensation to draw.

Playing around with this variation in Stockfish I think the thematic 17. g4!? appears much stronger (in fact after 16.Ne4 almost any logical response from black can be met with this move).

The eval jumps around around a lot so it can probably best be described as unclear. Stockfish eventually finds the computer defence of 17...Rae8 as best with an eval of +0.1.

A more natural looking variation might be 17...c4 18.g5 Ba3 19.b3 cxb3 20.axb3 hxg5 21.h6 g6 22.Bxg5 when white attack is looking far more potent than blacks.

  devere: 15...Nxd5 is the better way to capture for Black. After 16.Ne4 c4! Black is at least equal.

With 26...Bc7 instead of b5+ Black would have retained drawing chances.
