May-15-11  falso contacto: Leinier had a solid position at the beginning of the middlegame, then something went wrong.

  Gilmoy: Black pushes d5 to equalize in Sicilian. Maroczy Bind plays c4 to prevent that. Andreikin continues <21..Rc5!>, offering an exchange for <many free tempi>, which he uses for <22..d5!> to blow up the center, and the vastly irritating <24..h3>.

<26.Bxc5> grubs the material, but it looks like a strategic blunder: Black's recapture <26..Bxc5> wins a tempo <and> controls g1, with myriad smothering, parallel-diagonals, and (after <29..Nd1>) discovery/windmill threats. White's heav(ier) pieces are no match for Black's swarm of gnats.

Conjecture: Black's Bb7 was the strongest minor piece on the board <because> it moved the least number of times: <12.Bb7> once.

May-15-11  DanielBryant: I'm sure this is a really basic openings question, but I'm curious as I don't play the Sicilian: Why didn't he grab the pawn with 7...Bxc3?
May-15-11  bronkenstein: For example, 7. ...Bxc3 8. Bxc3 Nxe4 9. Qg4 Nxc3 10. Qxg7 etc .
May-15-11  DanielBryant: <bronkenstein> Thanks.
May-15-11  hedgeh0g: Moving the f-rook to c1 looked slightly suspect to me. Surely it makes more sense to move the a-rook to the c-file and the f-rook to the d-file to pressure d6 and keep d5 under control. The way the game went, White relinquished control over d5 and allowed the break.

  HeMateMe: Wonderful, deep combination by black.
May-17-11  beenthere240: It took white 5 moves to accept the exchange sacrifice on c5.

  tpstar: Great game by Black. The h Pawn advance really disrupted White's Kingside, then the Two Bishops were all powerful.

An instructive exchange sacrifice.

Jan-19-12  parisattack: Nicely played Kan. Shows how Black can get play all over the board in this variation.
Jul-09-12  fisayo123: Sweetness!
