Dec-05-05  Ybrevo: How nice to see the Yugoslav Attack at high level chess again! For many years 7. f3, a6!? was considered bad for black. This is the second game so far at the World Cup with a beautiful and quick win for the black pieces (think Tiviakov had the other). Does anyone know where the improvement lies?
Dec-05-05  Ybrevo: Error! The other game was Khalifman vs. Inarkiev. Sorry about that ...
Dec-10-05  belgradegambit: 11 a4 is supposed to be stronger. then
...b5, 12 Nd5! is an old line but perhaps there have been improvements.

27 ... ♕c3x♖d3! 0-1 <discovered pin>

Sakaev (Black) wins a whole rook with the nasty <DISCOVERED PIN> 27 ... ♕c3x♖d3!.

Feb-13-09  notyetagm: The above nasty <DISCOVERED PIN> 27 ... ♕c3x♖d3! is a good example of what can happen if White does not move his White c1-king off of the dangerous <HALF-OPEN> c-file when he castles queenside in these Open Sicilian positions.
Feb-25-10  FlintEastwood: I'm pretty shocked at this ending! Even more suprised to find out it wasn't blitz.

But hey, I just dropped about 100 on FICS tonight, so it's good to know that everyone has bad days ;)

Feb-25-10  goldenbear: In view of the dual threat of Bxd4 and Qa1+, what do you suggest instead, <FlintEastwood>?
Feb-25-10  goldenbear: 19.Rc8! is a great move by Black. It prevent Qc6+ followed by the discovered attack with the knight, which would have happened after the careless "19.Nxe3".
Feb-25-10  goldenbear: Might 20.Qe4 hold? (Although, to be honest, what's gonna stop that bishop in the long run?)
Apr-25-17  Saniyat24: Oh what a game...Erenburg's opening position was not bad at all, but Sakaev slowly but surely overpowers him...with his quirky little attacks which kept his opponent busy defending anyway he can...Black's castling at the 22nd move was also interesting!
