  fispok: What phenomenal positional sensibilities both of them have. Entirely closed development for 24 moves and then a positional sacrifice leading to some pretty fireworks. Also an excellent demonstration of not allowing piece cohesion in an open game; those bishops are monsters.

  kenilworthian: If 19...Nb6 then White wins with 20.Nb5 Qd7 21.Be6! and the Black Queen runs out of squares, which will cost him a piece.
