Jul-21-09  mertangili: A nice game of exchange Spanish from the player of the day. Well planned combo that shows the bishop on g4 is still untouchable.

  FSR: The main line 12.Nh2! Rxh2 13.Qxg4! leads to a better endgame for White after 13...Qh4 14.Qxh4 or 13...Rh4 Qf5. White's mistake was the novelty 12.dxe5?? This had been given in the book "The Marshall Attack" by Wade and Harding as "an untried novelty emanating from USA circles." I will never forget that stupid quote. The idea is to run away after 12...Nxe5 13.Nxe5 Qxe5 14.Kf1!, as Wade and Harding gave. Unfortunately, 12...Bxe5! 13.Nxe5? (losing, but White is in big trouble in any event) Qh4!, as in this game, is crushing. I discovered this myself, as I recall in the same year as this game. I tried 14.Kf1 Nf4! 15.f3 (what else?) g3! (the fastest) 0-1 Rhine-Marquez, Chicago 1974. Note that after 13...Qh4, if only White could throw away his knight on d2, he would mate with 14.Qd7+ Kf8 15.Qxf7#. Alas, there is no way. Tragicomic.
Jul-11-12  shakman: agree with <FSR> ... 12. Nh2 is main line here .... found another game with a deviation Naiditsch vs Kamsky, 2008
Jul-21-12  vinidivici: If memories don't get me wrong, this is Ruy Lopez Exchange Alapin variation. Its a mistake trying to save f3 knight.

Nice little trick.
