Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-30-10  meppi: 25c3+ is very good. It is the winning move. After the king accepts the (doubled) c pawn sac, smyslov eliminates the outside passed a pawn and isolates the b pawn. White blunders again next move by not defending the g pawn and smyslov isolates the h pawn and destroys a possible 4 pawn chain.

on move 32 you can see that all of whites remaining pawns are isolated and must be defended by the pieces. while symslov has connected pawns allround. so his pieces can attack. and all because of the doubled c pawn

Apr-01-11  SoundWave: meppi: White was lost long before 25. c3+.

Also if White defends the g pawn there follows mate in one with 27...Rxb3#
