Aug-23-09  Gouvaneur: Nice game from both sides. This game reminds me of Tal-Fischer (Zagreb 1959). Not sure about the date of the game, but it had very similar interesting turns. Tal also played c6, and Fischer also managed to free his Kings Indian Bishop, by an exchange on f4 (I think he even sacrificed a pawn on g3 too.)

Fischer lost that game though, Xie Jun did fine to draw against Korchnoi in this interesting game.

  plang: 17..g3 is a standard idea in this line - sacrificing a pawn in order to get at the White king. Black was defending well until 33..c6?! 34 Rc1!; better was 33..Rb8 34 Ra2..Rb4 35 Kf2..Kh7. Again 34..Re5 would have been better. After 44 a6?! the game was quickly drawn; stronger would have been 44 Kg5..Bh2 45 Kg6..Rg7+ 46 Kf6..Rf7+ 47 Ke6..Kg7 48 Rc2 with some practical chances for White.
