  fredthebear: This game has an interesting middle game shift. White tries to sneak in a B-Q battery support mate on c7 which dictates Black responses. Pins are involved. The battery gains a few pawns but cannot reach mate. White ends up w/a passed g-pawn on the kingside that makes the difference as the B-Q battery relocates on that side.
