Dec-19-05  notsodeepthought: Once the a pawn falls (and white has no good way to prevent it), how can you stop the march of the black queenside pawns?
Aug-14-08  wweiss: 30...Nxe5 is deserving of an exclamation point as Charousek avoids the temptation to undouble his pawns and instead opts for the threat on d3 that can't be defended against because 31. Rfd1 would be met with 31...Nf3+ winning a rook for a knight. 32. Nf3+ is also a very good move as it simultaneously checks the white king and cuts off the defence of the rook on the 5th rank.

  ToTheDeath: An example of how NOT to attack.

<10. O-O> Instead of this routine play 10.a4! would provoke ...b4, when White can play Bd3 without fear of harassment by ...Nb4 or...c4.

<12.Nh5> Again routine and unimaginative. 12.Nxd7! Qxd7 13.f5 gives White excellent attacking chances- as after 13...e5? 14.f6! Bxf6 15.Rxf6 gxf6 16. Bd3 White has a decisive attack. Refer to Colin Crouch's Atacking Technique for the hard variations, but as an example 16...f5 17.Bxf5 Qe7 18.Qg4+ Kh8 19.Bxh7! Kxh7 20.Rf1 Qe6 21.Rf5

<15.Ng6?> This fails due to a standard defensive technique- returning some sacrifices to remain with a small material and definite positional advantage. Better is 15.Nxc6 with equality.
