  whiteshark: <17.f4> was probably the beginning of the end. The silicon suggest 17. Nf4 Kb8 followed by 18. Nf3 Na4 and 19. Be3 Bc6 with balanced play.
Aug-13-12  BUNA: Andreikin exchanged his pieces quite cynically.
This position is probably one every french player can only hope for:

The "bad" bishop has arrived on e4.
Great stuff.

Feb-02-13  PhilFeeley: <"cynically"> How can you tell? Usually it just makes sense to exchange down to a winning ending.
Mar-30-18  ndg2: That's probably what BUNA meant with "cynically": not trying to win futily with a non-existent mating attack, but just going into a won endgame.
