  plang: This very sharp sideline of the Queens Gambit Accepted seems very risky for black. White's doubled pawn on b5 restricts black's queenside and makes the attacking potential of the isolated queens pawn even greater. Shamkovich wrote a column for Chess Life where he indicated that 16 Bxh7+ would have been a very dangerous sacrifice though with best defence black probably would have been able to defend. Huebner was critical of 16..Nd7; 16..g6 would have been better. Huebner felt that 23 c7 probably would have won for white. He does not mention the possibility of 23 Ba6 and 24 Bb7 which seems to win material. Huebner gave detailed analysis showing that 54 Kb4 would have won for white.
Jul-30-07  nescio: <plang> Both Karpov and Kasparov preferred 5...c6 instead of 5...Bb7, which may make it all less scary Vallejo-Pons vs Kasparov, 2005
