  Everett: Another positional crush from Seirawan, against the troublesome Slav. I'm sure Moro would play the black side differently... Is there a game that he's played where he responds to 5. a4 in a different manner than black here?
Nov-10-04  Garland356: What provokes 15 Kd8? It seems like right there black doesn't stand a chanse from the impending doom of Nh5 Bh6. Either way a win is a win.

  Everett: <Garland356> I wonder if black has anything better than 15..Be7 16.Na5 0-0 17.Bxa6 bxa6 18.Nxc6 Bf6 19.Rxa6 Ra8 20.b5 Bd3 21.Na7. If black tries 21..Rxa7 22.bxa7 Ra8 23.Rb6!? is interesting, as <23.Ra5 Bd8!> may be drawish.

Looks like an interesting position as most <piece for two pawns and a pawn roller> usually are.

Jan-24-16  Laboratory: Boris Avrukh recommends 6...b6! instead of dubious 6...Ra7?! which lead to trouble here.
