Oct-01-07  frank124c: Interesting Bishop sac enables white to bring his knight into position to force the king out into the open. I have noticed similar themes in other openings, for example the Fried Liver Attack and the Muir Gambit in the KGA. Does anyone out there know of other openings where a piece sac is used in this way?
Jul-02-08  kavalerov: This seems like a different sort of sac, trying to take advantage of Black's blocked up k-side by trading 3 pawns for a piece and unsettling the Black K. Works out pretty well if you ask me; it's likely a pretty shocking move to meet in the french advanced besides.

Only, I wonder why Sveshnikov didn't take the rook on move 22. Probably was thinking about his next game or what was gonna be for dinner I suppose.

  Domdaniel: Sveshnikov's 8.Bxc4! gives White a clear advantage. Instead of 7...Nge7, Black should play ...Na5.
Dec-17-15  cunctatorg: A very remarkable and quite intriguing game, worthy of much deeper (and/or ... Fritzier etc) analysis!!
