  Everett: Simple and smart is 15.e4, getting a solid clamp on the center as White's LSB will be swapped anyway. Petrosian proceeds to create a monster knight vs a sad bishop, and wins without Black making any noise.

Jul-23-12  Shams: <Garech> Is this a trick question? White wants to keep his h-pawn. By the way, there's a cute tactical reason why Black couldn't play ...Rxh5 on the previous move.
Jul-23-12  Garech: Aha! Thank you, <Shams> - I missed that. Bit out of practice!

Cheers,

-Garech

Is it, after <36..Rh1 37.f4> simply trapping the rook, forcing an exchange sac to extricate it? In the meantime White would be able to infiltrate with Re1-Rc1-Rc6/7/8

Apr-21-16  Howard: This game was annotated in one of Steven Giddon's books---it was one of two books in which he analyzed 50 chess games.

In other words, he wrote two 50-game books--both of them are excellent.
