  tpstar: For this GP line after 6. c3 a6 7. b4, it seems Black can play ... h6 & ... Bg4 together, but if ... Be6 instead, then avoid ... h6 due to light square weaknesses on the Kingside. R Reyes vs Bisguier, 1989 went 8. Re1 0-0 9. Nbd2 Be6 10. Nf1 d5 11. ed Bxd5 and Black equalized, later winning the endgame. Here the play was equal (note the Nc6 prevented d3-d4 since the Pb4 hangs) until White sacrificed a piece for dubious compensation, then Black sacrificed a piece for real compensation.

  tpstar: <Poulsen> Ha! So did I! Great pick-up about the missed Mate in Two. I tried to verify this game in Google with no result, so we'll have to accept the listed game score as correct. Black had to play 22 ... Qd8 covering f6, then 23. Qh6 Qf6 holds, or 23. Qxd8 Raxd8 with 2 Pawns for the piece. Another option is 22 ... f6 23. Qh6 Rae8 (otherwise 24. Be6!) and Black can untangle with 24 ... c6 & 25 ... d5 like the game. Do you see any earlier improvements for White?
May-19-04  notsodeepthought: Assuming that white was not totally drunk (and nor was black), perhaps the "repeatedly missed mate" issue may be resolved if we assume that white played 22 Qh6 (and not Qg5), which would also make 22 ... Rg8 look reasonable.
