Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-01-13  thomastonk: The position after 28.Qd4 is used in Uhlmann/Schmidt "Offene Linien", Berlin 1981 as an example for fighting for a weakness on the open line (here c7). However, the example is quite bad. Neither is 28.Qd4 a good move nor White is better thereafter. Moreover, some further comments are wrong, too, as everybody can check nowadays quite easily. I wonder, if the example is still in the German edition from 2006 or in the English edition called "Open files" from 2009.
Feb-24-18  clement41: 7...b6 usually is the tipoff for cxd5 in these positions, a famous instance being the 6th Fischer-Spassky 1972 WCC game. instructive sequence anyway from 28 Qd4!? on, grabbing the initiative and the c7 square for the rook
