Mar-11-07  Poisonpawns: "One is immediately struck by the doubled pieces on the g-file" "This means the bishop must be shifted in a way not to allow Rd2 or Rf2" thus Rf7! "Neishtadt"
Feb-25-11  Microbe: Stunning combination here from Sveshnikov! I was only looking through games in the Sicilian Sveshnikov to get an idea of how the opening feels and learn some of the plans in the middle games. Bumping into moves like 26... Rg8 an 27... Rf7! is a wonderful bonus!
