  TheAlchemist: A remarkable game by Smagin.

11...Ng5 tries to exploit the pin, but in fact loses. 12.Nxg5!! - sacrifices his Queen for 2 pieces and 2 pawns. Black's Queen remains bottled up on the Queenside, while White prepares for the final assault. In the end, Black loses a Rook or gets mated by Bg4.

Aug-08-05  Kangaroo: The plan with <10... Bg4> (better was <10...g6>) and especially <11... Ng5> is a root of all troubles.

The combination found by Sergey Smagin is interesting, but ... if his opponent had not created the opportunity for the queen sacrifice, it would not have shown up in the game.
