  WannaBe: Wonder if the last move was made in time trouble...

Andn that 9. Bf1 looks kinda out of whack...

  WannaBe: <IvoryKnightAndRook> Thanks for the post, I found on CG, that this game is the earliest in the database, where the Bishop retreats...

Robatsch vs P Roth, 1989

  HeMateMe: I think black's penetration is decisive after a pair of rooks get swapped on the f file, and then black plays Q-c1+ or Q-f4, depending on how white defends the f pawn, and white has all sorts of undefendable pawns and targets.
May-25-10  kingfu: alex, I do not think giving up the exchange was necessary, either, However, the f2 pawn is seriously weak and would be the breaking point. Giving up the exchange was trying to protect f2.
