Jul-20-07  Karpova: 16.c3 Ne5 17.Qg3 Nxd3 18.Qxd3 f4 19.Qd4 f3 20.Qxf6 Rxf6 oviously didn't look too inviting for Mieses so he sacrifices a pawn to get a bit of counterplay.

Rubinstein manages to hold the pawn skillfully (moves 18 to 23)

26....Qf6! attacks the Re7 and the pawn on b2 but after 27.Re2 or 27.Qe2 the move 27...c4 trapping the bishop comes as an unpleasent surprise.

  plang: After 7 Nxc6 Black is already equal.

<Karpova: 16.c3 Ne5 17.Qg3 Nxd3>

17..f4 looks even stronger.

Rubinstein gives 16 c3..Ne5 17 Qe3..f4.
