  whiteshark: What a position! After only 14 moves the second rank is completely free of white pawns. This reminds of the <Chinese Chess (Xiangqi)>, where chariots (rook-like) could be developed/deployed via the 2nd rank which is free at the starting position.

Nikolic was perhaps not aware of the strength of the beautiful silent move <15.Ra2!> when he decided to open the h-line in his 13th move.

In fact, this is also a motif that is so unusual that his <danger detector> didn't start. There was no more defense thereafter.
