Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-25-16  zydeco: One of the games from Sokolov's peak when he was playing aggressively and creatively.

Vyzmanavin employs a slightly exotic setup in the opening.

Apparently 9...Qc7 was a topical move at the time, although 9...d6 and 9....Be7 look more normal.

12...Be5 was a new move. 12....Bf4 was played in a different game and it looks logical, reducing white's attacking force. (12....Be7 may also be possible.)

20....a5 turns out to have no point. Probably something like 20....Ra7 was better.

21.Qh4! is a simple idea but cutely side-steps out of black's skewer while creating the decisive battery on the h-file.

25.Bf3!! is the key zwischenzug and probably what black overlooked.

It's mate after 29....Rxd5 30.Re4.
