Feb-20-05  suenteus po 147: For those of you with the final result turned off, ask yourself after move 29, which is the stronger rook pair?
Feb-09-07  DMBFan23: Why not 10...Qxc5 or 10...dxc5? Those, along with the text move, appear to be the choices crafty is considering (settling on dxc5 when I run the analysis)...but I am having a hard time understanding why Petrosian would basically give up the pawn here.

P.S. I really suck at chess.

  InspiredByMorphy: 10. ...Qxc5 11.Be3 . However 10. ...dxc5 is not as simple. I'm thinking that 11.Be3 Nxe4 12.b4 may be worth investigating although I can't safely say that this leads to an advantageous position for white.
