  perfidious: Velimirovic's 30....b3 is a fine idea in a position where it looks as though there should be nothing for him at all.

This has Sunday POTD writ large on it.

Feb-26-12  joshuap: I have to say that 30. ...b3! is quite brilliant! Even after 31. ...Rc3+, white cannot play 32.Kb1? because 32. ...Bd3+! 33.Ka1 Rc1# Black's other chance after 30. ...b3 is 31.axb3, but now black's queening tactic will require only a rook in exchange. 31. ...Re1+ 32.Kd2 a2 33.Kxe1 a1=Q+ and obviously, black wins. Good job Velimirovic!
Nov-08-13  LIFE Master AJ: Yes, a beautiful encounter.

(This game was quoted in the red book on the Sicilian Dragon, Yugoslav System ... by Sapi and Schneider.)

Jul-23-14  ScottElliott: Wow, brilliant from start to finish by Black. With the initial exchange sac by ... Rxc3 after drawing away the White queen ... Bxh6. Black had the positional insight to understand that with queens off the board, even the exchange down, his positional advantage was sufficient.
