  An Englishman: Good Evening: Eighty-third!

Jesting aside, this game puzzled me to no end. After 25 moves, I thought White had the edge, thanks to an advanced passed pawn blockaded by the Black Queen, a nice crossfire from the Bishops, weak dark squares around the Black King, and Rooks well posted on the central files. So I was puzzled when Black passed on the chance for a draw by perpetual.

Then he goes out and wins the game. Is anyone here a Grunfeld expert? I never could make heads or tails of the opening. Was White's position truly not as good as it appears?

  HeMateMe: Wonderful how black limited white's DSB to a point where white was effectively a piece down. Nice positional play.
