Jul-19-12  Everett: Sweet pawn sac starting with 18.e5!

Yusupov ends up with a great N and passer while turning off Black's DSB.

  perfidious: <Everett> This pawn sacrifice is thematic, very often seen in the Modern Benoni, especially the Taimanov (7.f4) line. In fact, 4.a3 declined in popularity, with most players going for 4.Nc3 Bb7 and only then 5.a3, because of 4....c5. Of course, 4.Nc3 allows the option 4....Bb4, which was a topical variation in the 1980s; Informator was always loaded with games.
Jul-20-12  Everett: <perfidious> I know, it never gets old! Happens in all sorts of openings... KIDs as well <1..f5 2.exf5 e4>

I simply like kibitzing on games that haven't been kibitzed before, maybe someone will see something useful for them. Usually get these games from puzzle books, but also from my own snooping.
