  tpstar: AAA really made something out of nothing here, although I wonder if Black would have any advantage after 24. Rxd7 = 24 ... Qxd7 25. Nf2 or 24 ... Qxe4 25. Qe2. 28 ... b5! was the stroke of genius.
Apr-24-11  pstanton: Strategically interesting is the sequence beginning with 19. . . . dxc4. AA chose a knight outpost and conceded control of an open file. I'm not sure if it's objectively the best move, but practically it seems preferable to trying to defend the weak, backward pawn e6.
