  WannaBe: If Avrukh saw that whole sequence from move 13 on, I'm amazed.
Jun-01-06  borisbadenoff: It's maybe not so hard to see where the advantages are. Because of the ongoing checks you can make a pretty deep pre-calculation. But black could have done better then 15. .. Qa5 with 15. ..Be7 16. Nxd7+ Ke8 17. Nf6+ Bxf6 18. Rxd8+ Bxd8 19. Bg3 and still a obvious advantage for white.

But even after Qa5 Guliyev has made additional weak moves.

Jun-01-06  question marks: The sac has been used before:

Fine vs Gruenfeld, 1936, Rautenberg vs C Toerber, 1947, A Greenfeld vs Korchnoi, 1988
