Mar-10-09  jon01: Highly notable game for Sanan Sjugirov. It's not often we see such a confident attack which begins with a bishops's sacrifice on move 9.
Mar-10-09  Billy Vaughan: What a bruising attack! Poor Loek must've been twitching in agony for hours thereafter.
Mar-10-09  cionics: Man, Sjugirov came out swingin'!
Mar-11-09  Andrijadj: Preparation...It is obvious...

Parmetd,
10...♕b6 would stop 12.♕d6, so maybe White was thinking of 12.♘d5 instead?
