  FSR: This game was published in the issue of Chess Life & Review that announced Trefler's stunning co-victory at the World Open. I happened to play Lipking in a blitz tournament a few weeks later, and mentioned this game. He replied that he had been winning it. Stockfish emphatically agrees, giving White a decisive advantage from moves 14 through 19. Lipking's 20.Bb5 was an inferior move, and the game went downhill from there.

  FSR: White should ignore Black's demonstration and play 19.Qf6! preparing Rh8. White's king will find safety on the kingside. Stockfish 15 assesses the position as +7!

  perfidious: <FSR>, it is of interest how Trefler exploits the one chance he is given, after White allows the play to sharpen to his own detriment, rather than keeping his opponent's game in a vice with the idea noted by Fishie. Perhaps Lipking feared 19....Rde8 with the centre still open.
