  Chessical: Sarapu uses a defensive set-up recently championed by Keres:

Geller vs Keres, 1951
Boleslavsky vs Keres, 1950

He comes close to equality, but Purdy is able to build up substantial K-side pressure. Sarapu may have been better off by defending his King with <g6>.

<27...Rd4?>

is a blunder which should have lost the Na5 after <28.Bf3!>

<32...Qb7?>loses immediately to the attractive <33.Bh6!!>
