Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-25-04  Prophylaxis: Chessbase categorized this under the KIA I believe... Extraordinary finale in this game. Aeroflot has yielded many games worth playing over.
Feb-20-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Beautiful attack! It is even more impressive because there doesn't seem to be any of Black's moves that really stands out as a mistake....

Perhaps an improvement would be 23...h6 instead of 23...Nd5?

  whiteshark: Shuffling pieces to the queenside doesn't literally generate any counterplay for black.

Position after <20...Rd8>
