Game Collection: 56_IPC = Irish Pawn Centre/middlegame-structure

Sep-10-16  ASchultz: Strictly speaking, White should probably have played Nd6 before Bxc4 to try to force cxb3. But on the other hand, we wouldn't have had a game like this with quadrupled pawns for so long.

And also 26. Rff7 instead of Rd6 looks more powerful. Bh8 Rxh7, or Bf8?? Nf6+. But after rooks are exchanged, the c5-pawn can't be taken. White has an interesting bind after this, and Black can't really get his pawns going. Fritz finds all sorts of mating threats.

  Penguincw: Wow, record for longest lived quadrupled pawns. And I thought the tripled pawns from Kavalek vs Fischer, 1967 was impressive.
