  luzhin: Not surprising this won the best game prize at Gibraltar. Among other spectacular variations there was 23.Kf4 Ng6+ 24.Kxf5 Qf6+ 25.Kg4 Qh4+ 26.Kf5 Be4 mate! I nominate this for Game of the Day, under the title No Way To Treat A Lady.

  SirRuthless: Good game. This defense should be called the QGA; Nakamura system-Edouard line.

  morfishine: Perhaps <13.Bc3> is more solid

  FSR: I never saw this line for Black (6...a6 7.Nxb5 axb5) before. ChessBase online has 15 games with it, all but three of which were played since March 2014.
Feb-13-15  Nerwal: A new line indeed, but this concept had already been tried in similar positions :

Gelfand vs Bacrot, 2002

Aronian vs McShane, 2012

Feb-13-15  nummerzwei: <Nerwal>: Indeed. I've even started a game collection on this type of sacrifice a while ago.

Game Collection: Slav Defence: Exchange Grab on a8

It's still rather slim, but it has three further examples other than those you mentioned.

Jul-15-15  mruknowwho: This is entertaining. I love games with strange, unpredictable moves.
Jul-15-15  dunican: So could someone explain, in general terms, what's the point of this exchange line? It seems so counter-intuitive, especially with not taking 9..Bxe4.
Jul-15-15  leow: I also wonder why not 9..Bxe4 I smell a rat but can't see it
Jul-15-15  nullmove: 16. Nf4 was the careless move, ceding control of d4. Required was 16. Bxb4 first.
Jul-15-15  goodevans: <nullmove: 16. Nf4 was the careless move, ceding control of d4. Required was 16. Bxb4 first.>

... except that that falls foul of <...fxe4>. white was in a bind and <16.Nf4> was an attempt to make some room.

Jul-15-15  LivBlockade: Here's another game in this line: B Adhiban vs Nakamura, 2015

  Sneaky: Woah! I never knew that 7.Nxb5 was even possible!

Oh no, this means there's one more opening variation I have to know about. Based only by this game, learning how to play the White side of this doesn't look like a whole lot of fun.

Curse these players coming up with new ideas.

Nov-12-16  MariusDaniel: Very nice game!
