  Benzol: I'll have to borrow the book again from <Richard Taylor> to find out. LOL.
Jul-25-11  sevenseaman: Interesting!
19. Nf6+! Ufimtsev's plan is visible from here. He has seen further than his opponent.

It matters little how Black captures the N bait.

  Benzol: <ughaibu> Here is Richard's response about this game <Richard Taylor: Re the Umfimtsev-Grushevsky game he gives it as an example in the notes to Perez-Bouwmeester. It is under The Petrosian System as (although there is an opening var. in the QI (an early a3) named that also but it might also be called Kasparov;s system..) in those days Petrosian had played it mostly but as I said Fischer also played it and indeed there is a game there by Fischer played in Oklahoma in 1956 (Fischer-Dr.Lapiken) using the system. The notes say that it can be reached by the French (and the English and the Sicilian of course) but in the game here they say that the Q's fianchetto is not a good idea in this system as Black wants to play f6 (to counter White's attack and his centre) so he needs the B to protect e6 ...that is a French theme or idea in fact).

At the finish they explain resignation as if after

23. Bxb7 Resigns


"...for if 23. ... Qxb7 24. Qg4 Kh8 25. Qxf4 f5 26. Ne6, winning easily"

All of this in the English or descriptive notation! Which Fischer used all his Chess life BTW !!
