  Benzol: Although this game is in Vasil Panov's file I suspect it may have been played by Vasily Panov

Can anybody confirm this?

  Phony Benoni: <Benzol> Honza Cervanka has some relevant comments here: Vasily Panov

And the next few kibitzes also confirm your suspicion.

  DrGridlock: My best "guess the move" score yet: 122 vs a par of 90.

I got most of the positional themes of this game:

(i) exchange g pawn for e pawn on f5

(ii) knight fork with the queen to bring e-pawn over to d-pawn majority

(iii) exchange sac on a6 to preserve c&d passed pawns

(iv) queen exchange to create c, d & e passed pawns

(v) active rook on b-column comes to 7th rank

(vi) bishop and rook work in coordination to advance white's pawns against black's rooks

(vii) rook sac to promote pawn

(viii) exchange queen for black's rooks

(ix) good night to black.

Instructive to play through a game and see how a GM puts all these elements together.

  DrGridlock: The one tactic I missed was at move 27 c4. I wanted to try to protect White's pawns with the rooks. Analyzing after the game with Komodo, if black plays ... qxc4 then white has Rxa7. White loses his two central pawns, but black loses all his pawns.

Sometimes eating all your opponents' pawns is the best defense!

Aug-26-12  GeneM: I cannot find this game in Mega Base 2008, nor in HugeBase. Seems an odd omission. Makes me wonder how ChessGames.com got this game. Ray Cheng's book "Practical Chess Exercises: 600..." uses 28 R:a6/B for his puzzle #282.
Aug-26-12  master of defence: I should have played 29...Qxd6, but I realized that white wins after 30.Bd5+ Kf8 31.Qh8+ Ke7 32.Qg7+ followed by Qf7# wins.
