  TheAlchemist: Another tactical fiesta. Podgaets bravely sacrifices both his rooks, but it was of no avail, as 19.Nb5! turns the tables and transforms the perilous looking white position into a win after 20.Ba5.
Oct-14-20  alexrawlings: What a game! <11.. cxd5> seems a safer and better choice given the madness that ensued.

I’m only just starting to look through Planinc’s games. What a fascinating player, a tragic life, and beautiful chess games he’s left behind for the living to enjoy. Thank you Albin for these wonderful games!

  fredthebear: Indeed! Albin Planinc had an enjoyable playing style.

This particular game finish will make a fellow think a bit. It's a king walk with no clear solution, as White promotes for two queens and batters the Black monarch about.
