Apr-25-12  J.MASSANET: 13.c5! : Korchnoi sacrifices a pawn in order to to compromise his opponent's pawn structure.

  pawn to QB4: well, if 55.d8 = Q then 55...Qe1+ and yes there is a perpetual check. Do you see a way of avoiding it while keeping the d pawn? 55. Kf1 won't work for instance: ...Qd1+ 56.Kf2 Qd2+ and back to the first rank for White or he gets mated.
