  Karpova: Yates included this game in his own collection of his best games!

the key-move is 15.nd5! since 15...c6 is not possiblebecause of the weakening of the qp.

the following attack on black's king is very beautiful. after 21.cd even black's c-pawn becomes weak. 22...c6? is of course a mistake because it makes d5 accesible for the white bishop.

Mar-19-05  paladin at large: Thanks for the information and analysis. It is a very pretty finish.
Nov-22-05  Neurotic Patzer: I think the real highlight is how Capa forces Yates to weaken his position by focusing on his dark squares, namely f6, with his knight and queen and his timely pawn advance. Very instructive. A Capablanca game is worth 10 chess books
Nov-22-05  euripides: Golombek criticises 12...a5. But in 1947, when he wrote, the King's Indian (which Yates helped to pioneer) was not well understood outside the Soviet Union. Perhaps Black should aim to put the pawn on c6 and the bishop on e6. He might sacrifice the pawn on d6. The sequence of Rb8 and Bd7 looks more dubious than a5.
