  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Yes, 12...e5 does constitute a deliberate gambit of a pawn, and yes, it does have 21 games in the database. But White enjoys a significant plus score. Any Grunfeld experts out there? What compensation for the pawn minus does Black obtain? It was invisible to me in this game.

  Marmot PFL: I don't get it either. I still remember the first game in this line Topalov vs Svidler, 2006 where Topalov gave back the pawn in order to play Nd5 and thought the position looked awful for black.

  ChessHigherCat: Well it seems okay if white doesn't make the best move (as he did here):

1) +0.25 (35 ply) 13.dxc5 Be6
2) =0.00 (35 ply) 13.Qa4 Bd7
3) -0.13 (34 ply) 13.d5 f5

  HeMateMe: as long as black keeps the a7 pawn doesn't he have drawing chances?
