Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-22-05  WMD: 13.Rfe1, offering a second pawn sac in this line, is a Beliavsky novelty.

Akopian's 16...c5 is the sort of uncompromising move that most people would never even consider, let alone play.

On first sight, 17.Bd5 seems very strong but Black's counterplay becomes evident after: 17...Nd6 18.dxe5 Nxe5 19.Rxe5 Rxe5 20.Nxe5 Bxb1 21.Qxb1 Nb5! 22.Qxb5 Rxd5 23.f4 f6 24.Nf3 Qxf4.
