Nov-26-06  syracrophy: The white ♕ can't protect the ♘ of c2 anymore, since the ♗ of b3 is pinned, the ♘ has no protection and it will be captured in the next move

  al wazir: 23. Nc2 looks weak. Either Ne2 or Nf3 would have put up more of a fight.
Nov-26-06  Sularus: Very cleBer attack !

White's h1 rook is nazired from the white forces.

Nov-26-06  psmith: <al wazir>
According to Fritz 5.32
23. Nf3 Rxb2 24. Ka1 Bxc3! (25. Nxg5 R2xb3#)
23. Nde2 Rxe2! 24. Nxe2 (24. Qxe2 Na3+) Nd2+ 25. Rxd2 Qxd2 26. Nc3 Bd3+ 23. Nce2 Rxe2! similarly
winning for Black in all lines.

  al wazir: <psmith>: You're right, I was much too sanguine. All six of black's pieces are involved in the attack.

I think the move that got white into all that trouble was 13. Nge2. If he had played Nf3 he could have castled short.

  kevin86: A nice attack by black decides this one. The queen must defend the knight,but she no longer can do so-the end is here.
Nov-26-06  TTLump: Although the move 23. Nc2 got White into hot water, he was already in some difficulty due to ceding control of the F-file to Black. He should have played Rf1 at move 17 or 18.
Nov-26-06  Dobbs: ...Re2 was genius

forces the white queen off the h7-b1 diagonal, allowing rook takes bishop on b3 followed by queen takes c2 check and queen b2 checkmate.

Nov-09-13  Swedish Logician: The black variation, with 8. _ b5 was introduced by Timman in his game with Spassky, IBM 1973. Spassy refused the pawn sac. The seond sacrifice 10. _ e4 and 11. Ng4, Timman gave already in his comments to the game Timman-Balashov, Sochi 1973, published in Learn from the Grandmasters (ed. Keene), Batsford 1975.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: After 20...Rb8, White has a choice of Queen & Rook forks at e6 and c6, but both look too risky. 21.Nc6, Qg5+ (Qb6!?); 21.Ne6,Qb6 (Qf6!?).
Mar-08-21  Swedish Logician: The final part of this game plays like a Volga/Benko Gambit, where for some unfathomable reason White's King has landed on the Queenside.
