kerpa: Featured as the 1st game in IM Valeri Lilov video course on the English opening.
   Aug-28-20 N Muminova vs Bich Ngoc Pham, 2012
kerpa: Placing the White Knight on d6 (move 22) is what Arthur van de Oudeweetering calls an "octopus" (for obvious reasons) - this game is cited as an example on p. 17 of his book Improve Your Chess Pattern Recognition.
   Aug-28-20 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971
kerpa: In his book Improve Your Chess Pattern Recognition, van de Oudeweetering cites move 22 of this game as the most famous example of an exchange to transform "the character of his advantage." p. 16

kerpa: Michael Stean in his fine book Simple Chess shows that black lost because of his weak pawns on c6 and d6. Great explanation of how White forced Black to commit his resources to th eir defense, permitting he decisive kingside attack.

kerpa: John Emms annotates this game in the chapter on problem pieces in his book More Simple Chess.
   Feb-02-14 Panov vs V Makogonov, 1937
kerpa: A great analysis of this game appeared in Chess Review November 1946 in the column "Chess Movies" by Jack Collins. This great feature, which I wish CL would bring back, had a diagram every 2 or 3 moves or so with a short paragraph below each diagram, emphasizing positional rationale ...

kerpa: Surprised no one has mentioned this, but Horowitz and Mott-Smith use this game as an example in their Development chapter of Point Count Chess, of White blundering as early as 10. cxd5 -trying to reach a draw by exchanges and instead falling too far behind in development, by 16..RFd8,
