Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-17-08  micartouse: Soltis in Pawn Structure Chess gives this game as an example of Black fighting against the Maroczy bind with ... a6 and ... b5. At this point, he is threatening ... b4 as well.

White played 15. b4 in an attempt to gain a queenside advantage through tricky play, but Black found wild combos to win. No surprise, since Black gets fearsome queenside pressure in the Dragon via the c-file and long diagonal.

  wordfunph: game anecdote..

When GM Andras Adorjan sacrificed his queen against Rodolfo Cardoso, one of the participants asked him with a jocose shake of the head during the game, "Are you crazy risking that again?" Adorjan replied: "Not crazy, just romantic." Adorjan won nd was rewarded with the brilliancy prize.
