  KEG: Fine play by Burn.

After Sterling's weak 12...f5 (12...a6 was best) Burn played the excellent 13. g4! exploiting Sterling's tangled pieces and giving him a likely winning king's side attack.

Sterling made Burn's task easier with his 13...Ng6? (13...g6 was best as Rosenthal pointed out in the Tournament Book), his 15...Bb4 was bad (15...cxd5 was better but hardly sufficient), and his 16...Kh8 was hopeless.

The opposition was weak, but we can only admire Burn's powerful destruction of Black's poor position.

  Domdaniel: Yes, nice play by Burn. Suitably inflammatory.

Some tropes in the opening were decades ahead of their time. Black's 2...Nf6 against the Queen's Gambit was long regarded as weak, until it was revived in the 1990s. And White's 5.Bf4 was not often seen until Miles played it, also in the 1980s and 90s.
