  benveniste: The finish is lovely, but I chalk this one up to the exchange sac at move 24. White's queen is woefully out of position to handle the inevitable king-side response to 25. h4.
May-23-05  Everett: Apparently Polgar could have used some help from Petrosian on when to use the exchange sac.

And most exchange sacs come in the rook vs bishop form, I think, where color complexes become an issue... I could be wrong.

May-24-05  PaulLovric: wow this is fine
Oct-29-05  chesscrazy: i agree
