  Dr. Funkenstein: Why is black so afraid to castle after Qxc4? It seems to allow Zvjaginsev to get something immediately out of his gambit, in this case the king stuck in the center.
Sep-12-06  Ziggurat: 19...Rb8?? is a pretty bad blunder. Something like 19...Rg8 would keep him in the game.

Position after 19 ... ♖a8-b8??

Black has just made a huge tactical blunder.

In the diagrammed position Black has two pieces that are threatened with capture, his b8-rook and f6-bishop. Since the Black d8-queen must <DEFEND> the Black b8-rook from the threat of ♖b1x♖b8, it is up to the Black d5-knight to <DEFEND> the Black f6-bishop from the threat of ♕h6x♗f6.

But the Black d5-knight defender is easily <DRIVEN OFF> by the pawn push c2-c4, <REMOVING THE GUARD> of the Black f6-bishop by <DOMINATING> it's Black d5-knight defender.

So the Z-man simply exploits these tactical ideas in the proper move order with 20 ♖b1x♖b8 ♕d8x♖b8 21 c2-c4, shown below.

Position after 20 ♖b1x♖b8 ♕d8x♖b8 21 c2-c4

Black cannot save both his d5-knight and f6-bishop and so resigned.

Like Dr. Nunn says, <LPDO - Loose Pieces Drop Off!>.

Feb-10-09  KERESOV: This Fantasy Variation game is very interesting ... 4. Be2 looks like a novel idea. Vadim is more than willing to part with his pawns all for the sake of the initiative.
Sep-13-11  pinknipple: I like white's opening
This can be desribed as gambit play
Sep-13-11  pinknipple: What is better move instead of 19....Rb8 white is threating to play 20.Rb7 and if. 19.....Qe7 it is hard to connect rooks
