Dec-31-05  Resignation Trap: Unlike endgames, positions with bishops on opposite-colored squares in middlegames are often decided in favor of the player with the initiative.

Out of nowhere (or so it seems) up comes 45.Re6! and White's attack flows smoothly in the vicinity of the opposing King.

  tamar: <Out of nowhere (or so it seems) up comes 45.Re6!> Exactly. Playing through the game, and thinking it was the one game Petrosian had lost to Janosevic (not in this database apparently), I couldn't figure out why he let Janosevic have the b pawn.

Shredder strongly urges Petrosian to protect it with 42 Qe3 instead of 42 Bxe5.

Then suddenly, after 45 Re6 Shredder sees what Petrosian must have seen at move 42, that Black has no defence to 51 f5
