  Chessical: Ernst underestimates Smyslov's K-side initiative, and the unimpeded advance of the <f> pawn destroys hims.
Feb-16-12  Everett: Funny how the the dual threats of Nf7 and Ng6 are impossible to meet adequately. 27.e6 is simple beauty. I'm always a sucker for a nice pawn sac to plant a N on an advanced blockading square.
