  plang: Rublevsky had introduced 11..Bd6 in this topical line of the Queens Gambit Accepted in his loss to Pelletier at Lucerne 1997. Pelletier had played 12 Re1. 13 a3 was first played by Dreev vs Rublevsky in a speed game at the Presidents Cup at Elista 1998. Bad would have been 15 Qxd4?..Nxf3+ 16 Nxf3..Rxf3 17 e5..Nxe5 and wins. Rublevsky built a strong attacking position but after 23 Qe2 or 23 Qe3 White should be able to defend (23 Ra2?..Rf4 24 Qe2..Nxf2 is bad for White). After 23 Qh4? the attack crashed through.
Nov-30-09  notyetagm: Wow, 26 ... ♘f4-h3+!!.
Nov-30-09  notyetagm: 26 ... ♘f4-h3+!! is made possible by the Black d5-rook on the <OPEN> d-file and the Black f7-rook on the <HALF-OPEN> f-file.

Once again, <ACTIVE PIECES LEAD TO TACTICS>.
