  Benzol: <ToTheDeath> <A serene positional struggle> LOL.

Looks like a diamond cut diamond kind of game to me. Hope both of the players enjoyed it as much as the spectators probably did.

Aug-16-08  Lutwidge: IIRC, this game marks Black's last hurrah in this famously sharp variation of the English Defense.
Mar-08-11  Nilsson: 13.Ng3?! Better is 13.0-0-0 and white has good compensation. /JN
Jul-09-11  Otti: This game was played at the Junior-WC, Dortmund 1980. Kasparov was 1st, Nigel finished 2nd.
