Mar-07-08  arsen387: the hardest thing to do is to make a win against a GM look SO SIMPLE!
Jul-07-08  myschkin: <This is one of the first examples of the Petrosian Variation of the King's Indian Defense, and the tactically talented Yukhtman is clueless, as White achieves light-squared domination and crushes Black. An important game for KID players to understand.> (Dennis Monokroussos)

An important part of the white strategy is the entombment of the dark-square bishop g7. He wants to eliminate the important knight on f4, but if he plays 18.Bxf4 straightaway Black will free the bishop with 18...Nb4! 19.Qb3 exf4.

Hence the nice move 18.a3! Now 19.Bxf4 Nxf4 20.g3 is a real threat.

Sep-05-19  thom0909: Black seems to be flailing his last seven moves. But he wasn't in a good spot before then.
