Feb-05-12  hedgeh0g: 60...Rg3+! is a nice finesse, ensuring White gets zero counterplay. Protecting the pawns with Kc2 or Kc4 prevents the White rook from exchanging itself for the pawn by coming from behind, while other king moves lose to ...Rxb3.
Feb-05-12  Badmojo: Badmojo: assume he played 60 Rg1 instead.

61 Rc8 h1Q
62 Rh8+ Kg3
63 Rxh1 Rxh1
64 Kc4

Can White do damage with those two outide passers vs the rook?

  Penguincw: Once again, pawn structure matters. Yusupov's pawn on the queenside are clowns.
Apr-12-18  pencuse: Yusupov had a decision of a middlegame plan by move 23. g4 in which he intended to attack the black's king using Bc3 and g-h files opened by the sacrificed pawn. But he could not find additional reserves, partly because 1) Kasparov could bring Ra8 quite quickly. 2) Kasparov kept white busy with a defensive 25. ... f6.

At the end white could not find additional reserves and the sacrificed pawn cost him loss of the game (at the final position the additional pawn on king side is going to get queen).

It is of course damned difficult to predict in advance whether you can find enough reserves for your plan!

A very nice example of middle plans (even if it is lost)
