Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-21-07  xombie: Not cool! Looks like a cheapo, but is probably not (2 minor pieces for rook), starting with

9 .. Bf5(?)

I don't like 11 .. Qe7 either-it leads to the forced sequece of moves seen here. The retreat Bg6 could have been possible on move 11. But the center is lost.

Aug-03-13  say it with a smile: 12.e4! Black is lured with a free pawn.
Petrosian is gunning for another one of
his infamous exchange sacrifices.
14.Rxf6 ! Black is all of a sudden under-developed. Elementary my dear.
