Feb-19-03  refutor: 6.c5 looks like a patzer's move but morozevich used it effectively, grabbing space and throwing bareev's queenside forces into disarray. bareev kept a cool head though and was able to exchange queens and come out two pawn up
Feb-20-03  Cyphelium: c5 is a nice move. I play the Panov-Botvinnik myself, and I've noticed that people unfamiliar with the theory of this line are quite provoked by this move, probably because such moves are bad in QGD postions, which this resembles. Here it is perfectly respectable though, and even mainstream theory.

Ususally though, white waits a little and plays Nf3 before playing c5.

Oct-03-04  clocked: Someone might want to start a collection of games where 0-0 is the game losing move!

White obtains a very large advantage out of the opening. Things take a turn and white has successive opportunities to at least draw. Is this loss more a result of miscalculation or emotion?

Oct-03-04  iron maiden: <clocked> Do you know of more games where 0-0 is the losing move?
Oct-03-04  Kean: 11.Nxe4 was the root of whites bad position, he faced a weak pawn structure, and is precisely the lost of those pawns what made him emerge with a lost ending, tough surely Moro took the risk knowing this.
Oct-03-04  clocked: <Kean> bad position? white has a fantastic position
Oct-03-04  Kean: <clocked> I dont think white, according of what happened in the game, had had any definitive advantage and even so he adquired consciously a weakness, the pawn chain c5-d4, and those pawns were the difference at the end.

  plang: 6 c5 is rarely played; typical of Morozovich's fresh approach to opening theory. 9..bxc?! was new and led to a White edge; 9..Ne4 had been played previously and 9..a5 also looks like a logical response. 16 Qa5 was suggested as an improvement as 16..Qxa5? 17 Bxa5 would have been powerful for White. White's combination starting with 18 Qe8+?! was faulty (18 c6 was suggested by Hort with advantage). Still White could have drawn with 20 Rb7! (20..Rd1+ 21 Ke2!) 20..Nd7 21 Qxa8..Qxc5 22 Bxd4..Qc1+ etc.; instead after 20 0-0? he was lost. 21 Rxb8..Rxb8 22 Qxb8..Rd1 also would have been strong for Black.
