  Phony Benoni: OK. I'm not going to restart the old argument about what a sacrifice is. That will never be settled.

However, in this game, <35...Qc7> is <NOT> a sacrifice.

By the way, this was a costly loss for Portisch. Before the game, he was in line for a spot in the Candidates; afterwards, his chances were all but gone. And this against an opponent whom had defeated four times in a row, all with White! Apparently, the fifth time was a charm.

  perfidious: As was the case vs Manuel Aaron in 1962, and nearly so while losing the last round at the IZ to Oscar Panno in 1973, apparent psychological instability costs Portisch when in sight of the Candidates event.

  perfidious: The later loss to which I alluded a while ago was not to Panno, but came in Polugaevsky vs Portisch, 1973.
