Mar-11-06  zev22407: Velimirovic destroys black's position with the tematic sacrifice on b5- 13) B:b5 .
Oct-20-13  Zugzwangovich: Spassky missed a chance to play this sacrifice against Fischer in Game 15 of the Reykjavik match, opting instead for 13.Bxf6 Nxf6 14.Qxg7.

  plang: Very nice attacking game - 13 Bxb5 was an excellent innovation.

  thegoodanarchist: Al-Qazzaz lacked pizazz. He responded poorly to White's razzmatazz.

Anyway, Black resigned because 28...Kh8 is followed by 29.Qa5+ and then 30.Qxd8
