Apr-19-11  Calar: Great attack by Nepomniachtchi! He manages to completely destroy pawn shield around Black King.

Pawn sacrifice 12.f6 , freeing f5 square for knight, is nice.

  profK: I love the Adams...played it for 20 years in correspondence, a very flexible line for white (and I never lost one...) Black has to hit the centre early with a ...d5 and get away from standard sicilian setups, otherwise white can develop aggressive initiatives.
Apr-19-11  fab4: Classic example of peices being isolated and out of the zone of attack.
Apr-20-11  toposcar: IAN I the great strikes again!
