May-12-07  Octavia: 2nd game in THE QUEEN'S INDIAN by Peter Wells, pub gambit
Premium Chessgames Member
  plang: Polugaevsky played the gambit 7 d5 three times against Korchnoi in their 1980 Candidates match. In games 6 & 8 he had played 8 Nd4 winning once and losing once. In game 12 he played 8 Nh4 (which keeps more pressure on d5)and won. This is now considered to be the main line. 13 Nc3 was new; 13 Qg4 had been played previously. Piket could have drawn with 18 Bxh6..gxh 19 Qxh6..f6 20 Bf5..Nd7 21 Qg6+..Kf8
22 Qh6+ but Van Der Weil felt that Piket was justified in playing for a win. He, however, recommended 18 g4 or 18 Bf5 as better tries than 18 Re3?!. Piket's decision to focus his attack on e6 was not effective and allowed Van der Weil to consolidate while holding on to his extra pawn. Perhaps Piket would still have had some chances to hold if he had played 24 Bxg6.
Oct-19-18  Saniyat24: Wouldn't 27.Be6 been better for White? Piket got such a good position from the opening, it's a shame he could not convert it into a win...
