Mar-31-04  notyetagm: This game won the First Brilliancy Prize at the 2003 Russian Championship and finished second in the voting for the Best Game Prize in Chess Informant 88, behind only Anand's stupendous win over Bologan from Dortmund 2003.

Great attacking move. If white played careless 20 Bh6 he would be in trouble after 20... Kxd4! 21 Bxf8 Rxf8 22 Qh6 Ne6 and if now 23 Bc4 the riposte is 23... Qxc5 and wins the bishop. Now white is treathening to win with Bc4!! Great game by Sakaev.

I mean 20... Nxd4 ofc.
