  GrahamClayton: Taimanov's 51.♗e7 is a paradoxical move. On the surface, the Bishop is incarcerated, losing all mobility,and yet it not only ties down the Black King, but cuts off the Black Knight's access to kingside, allowing the advance of the White h-pawn.

Feb-07-17  NBZ: Remarkable how h7 wins two pieces with one pawn: if Nxh7 Bxe4 threatening mate leaves Black no choice but to lose the knight as well.
