Apr-03-06  Resignation Trap: <Rhamporhynchus>? Most players this side of the Monongahela River have a hard enough time just saying "Najdorf".

By the way, an excellent win by the Player of the Day over one of the top players in the world at the time.

  zydeco: Very complicated game - with a nice healthy disdain for material by both players.

13....e6 is needed because white is threatening to trap the queen with 14.Rb5 or 14.a3.

14....Bxe5? (or 14....Nxe5?) fails to 15.a3 Qb6 16.Rxe5.

16.Qg3 threatens 17.Rxc4 and if 17...Qc7 white has ideas with 18.Nb5.

Lutikov passes up his opportunity to win the c-pawn on move 17 and 18 in order to attack on the kingside.

I'm surprised by 23.Rd1. Immediately 23.g4 seems fine.

If 29.cxb3 I imagine Larsen was planning 29....Nb4 30.Bxb7 Nd3+ 31.Kf1 Nxc5 32.Bxc5 Rd1+ and the position gets very messy.

30.Qg2 finishes off the game. I think the point is that after 30....Rc8 white plays 31.Rc3! and there's no good way to prevent Bd5+ and Bc5+. If 31....Ba8 32.Bd5+ Kf8 33.Bc5+ Ne7 34.Bxe7+ Kxe7 35.Rxc8 Qxc8 36.Bxa8. Although maybe there's a defense with 31....Qd7 and the king can escape to e8.

Mar-19-15  Retireborn: <zydeco> In Informator this game is annotated by Gligoric, who regards White as virtually winning after 13.Rd5! It seems Black must play the consistent 5...Bxc3+ if he wants to try this line.

Lutikov presumably plays 23.Rd1 to prevent simplification by 23...Nd4, but I agree that it's an unnecessary precaution.
