Jul-22-05  pencuse: 18. ... b5!! is a superb move. 19. Bxb5 c4! and white has no solution to escape his bishop. Declining pawn sacrifice left Yusupov a bad bishop. To compensate this problem, he tried to prepare a counter-attack with his queen, but this plan cost his queen at the end.
Jan-10-07  ToTheDeath: Yes very fine game.
Nov-11-07  notyetagm: <pencuse: 18. ... b5!! is a superb move. 19. Bxb5 c4! and white has no solution to escape his bishop.>

Yes, 18 ... b7-b5!! is a tactical genius move.

  Domdaniel: There's an excellent analysis of this game in Andrew Soltis's book "Your Kingdom for my Horse" (Batsford 2015).

The book deals with the art of exchanging.

  whiteshark: As Soltis pointed out <32...Ra8?> was a mistake and <33.f4!> would have led to 'roughly equal chances' (33...Bc7 34.Qe7 or 34.Qd4+).

<Dom> Thanks for mentioning the Soltis book! ;)

  Domdaniel: <whiteshark> Not at all: I happened to be reading it anyway.

Are you, by any chance, working for Batsfords? Or employed by Soltis?

Andrew Soltis is an anagram of <Win, loss, rated>

Or: lose, win, darts.

Or: draw, tie'n' loss ...

Mar-25-18  NBZ: 36. Rh1 was rather a bad blunder near the end. Maybe he did not see how close his queen was to being trapped, maybe he was in time trouble. Moves like 36. Qc8 or 36. Rd7 would have put up much stiffer resistance.
