  Honza Cervenka: This game was played poorly by Timman.
Sep-09-04  WMD: Yusupov's 10.Bd5 was a novelty, I believe, in OTB play. He must have looked at the alternative 10.Bxf7+, when play revolves around Black's attempt to trap the cornered Queen:

10.Bxf7+ Rxf7 11.Qxa8 c6 12.Qxa7 e6 13.Qa8 Rb7 14.Ne2 Qc7 15.Ba3 Bf8 16.Bd6 Bxd6 17.cxd6 Qxd6 18.d5 exd5 19.0-0 Re7 20.Nd4 Bxf1 21.Kxf1 with equality, is one fascinating line.

  avtaplanit: I don't see anything wrong with 11.Bxc6
Who can help me see the light ?
Apr-08-15  Nerwal: After 11. ♗xc6 ♘xc6 12. ♕xc6 ♖c8 White's position is very bad : he has completely lost the initiative, is lagging behind in development, is weak on the light squares, and the extra pawn on c3 becomes a big target.
