  perfidious: Wexler's 26.Ng4 was a positional error. The position which arises after Black's reply, followed by exchange of the dark-squared bishops, leads to a static position which most masters today would avoid at any cost.

  NM JRousselle: It's difficult to believe that an IM would play 26 Ng4 unless he had seen some tactical possibilities or was in serious time trouble. From a strategic view, this move makes far too many concessions. When I 1st played over this game, as soon as I saw 20 f3, I thought "better not play Ng4 before playing Bh3". I was shocked to see 26 Ng4.

  plang: 8 g3 had been several times but Korchnoi felt that 8 Qc2 was stronger. 10 e4 was a new move; 10 Bxd5 had been played previously. 17 Nd3 looks more logical; the knight looks weak after 17 Nh3!?. Korchnoi criticized 18 Nf1? as too passive recommending 18 f4 which is both more risky and more aggressive. 26 Nh1 with the idea of g4 and Ng3 was suggested though Black would still be better I think.
Apr-05-19  RookFile: A problem with 8. g3 is you can't play Ng3 which is common for white.

  Fusilli: I just played over this game on Guess the Move. Good training. I did well, although there was no par. I guess that means nobody played it before? (I scored 79 points... if you try it, you can at least compare to me.) True what <perfidious> and <NM JRouselle> say about 26.Ng4.
