Nov-18-05  Chess Addict: I think this is somewhat of a Hedgehog setup for White, isn't it?
Nov-18-05  aw1988: Not... quuuite...

It's somewhat, but not the exact formation.

Apr-17-11  meetjain2295: 44...Qb1+ wins for black, doesn't it?

  Calli: <meetjain2295> No, it doesn't because White has Qe7 after Black captures on a2.

  plang: Bogoljubov equalized in the opening and was fine until 29..a4?; 29..Ra7 breaking the pin was called for. Again 30..Ra7 was best; after 30..e4? Bogoljubov may have thought he could answer 31 dxe! with 31..cxb overlooking the powerful reply 32 e5!. After these two errors White was better. 40..Rd2 would have lost to 41 Nxd8.
