Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-17-10  alexrawlings: I don't understand 17.. g5 why doesn't white just take it with 18 Bxg5?
Mar-17-10  Kangaroo: Obviously, it was a risky pawn sacrifice, mainly for some positional compensation. For instance, if <18. Bxg5> (which is not so bad by itself), then <18... Ng6> followed by <19 ... Be5> if circumstances allow, and Black will maintain some pressure over the dark squares nearby the White King.

When one has to defend under time pressure, it may be a good idea to take the initiative over, even if the sacrifice is not 100% correct! Black would have <SOME> compensation, similar to what they had after the move in the game.
