  HeMateMe: Yeah, this is terrific. VK has the tempo and never lets go.
Mar-18-15  Isilimela: Difficult to follow the ideas in Skorchnoi's head in this game. The sac on f2 doesn't look that convincing but white is gradually strangled! I'm surprised there's not a lot more comment!
Mar-18-15  Nerwal: This game is featured in several books, because it shows Black energically refuting a drawing strategy by White which turns into passivity.

  fredthebear: If 26.BxRe2 with the idea of allowing 26...NxQc1 27.RxNc1 giving White a clear piece advantage, Black plays an intermezzo check instead 26...Qf4+ 27.Kh3 Nf2#. Any type of White knight move to diagonally defend the f4-square does not work either.
