Jul-20-06  Gouki: white sacrifices a knight in order to get a winning attack on move 46, but black declines the offer.

white mates next, after 49...Ke6 50.Nf8#.

Dec-14-15  Elrathia Kingi: According to Kotov in "Think Like a Grandmaster":
<"In the 1967 Palma de Mallorca tournament, Botvinnik adjourned his game with Matulovic and during the break from play remarked to Smyslov and me: 'This position is an easy win for white. At the appropriate moment there is a decisive knight sacrifice at g6 or h5. I analyzed similar positions when I was preparing for my match with Tal.' Then straightaway he found the right way to go about winning it.">
