Plop! That's one mean bishop sacrifice! FTB wishes he had a collection like that.

One weakness of doubled c-pawns is that it isolates the a-pawn and the structure turns into Swiss cheese on the queenside.

  perfidious: Long castling has been known to be a poor idea since this game was played; better for White not to prematurely commit his king, as in Gipslis vs E Ubilava, 1974.
