Feb-07-04  refutor: sosonko gets a beautiful position v. the yugoslav attack and sacks his queen...opening preparation?
Feb-07-04  BiLL RobeRTiE: I think so! In fact, this is the first game in which black played 13...Rc5! which prepares ...b5 and allows for the possibility of ...Rxd5 in response to a White plan with Bxf6 and Nd5. Previously black had tried 13...Nh7, which is favorable for white after 14. Bh6. Anyway, after this game 13...Rc5! became the "only response" to 13. Bg5, and it continues to be so to this day.
Feb-07-04  BiLL RobeRTiE: I sorta doubt that he prepared out to 22. Na4, though, which makes it even more impressive =]
Jul-02-08  Xeroxx: White must play 17. Bxf6
