  keypusher: I think 8...Nh5 was just one of those really bad ideas that sometimes afflict imaginative chess players.
Nov-20-06  Rama: 15. ... Qf6?, was another. Qe7 would be much better, as it would allow K-side castling by preventing white's Bd6.

20. d5! ..., spells real trouble. The e-pawn is pinned, and if 20. ... cxd5, then 21. Bxd5 ..., and the black King is exposed thanks to the Q-side castle. The Bf4 is murderous in this line.

Apr-01-14  zydeco: The finish is 21.....Nxb3+ 22.axb3 Qd7 23.Qxa7
Jul-23-14  jasmin: Why not 12. NxB?
Jul-23-14  ughaibu: How would white continue after 12...g6?
Jul-23-14  Retireborn: <jasmin> 12.Nxh5 allows 12...Qa5ch 13.c3 Qxh5 with equality.

<ughaibu> Looks to me if 12...g6 13.g4 just wins a piece as the bishop has nowhere to go.

Jul-23-14  ughaibu: Aha!


Apr-08-15  A.T PhoneHome: That was quick! It's funny how after 12.Qe2, Spassky is targeting e6 with three pieces; not exactly hesitating to show his intentions.
Apr-11-16  edubueno: Foguelman's 10...h6 seems to be the mistake. Why not 10... Ae7? After that white should choose something like 11 Af4 or directly to resign.
Apr-11-16  edubueno: 10...Ae7; 11 Rf2!
Jan-27-18  edubueno: 15...Df6 es un error grueso, porque Foguelman no alcanzó a ver que 18...PxP, 19 PxP - TxP; 20 TR1AR! ganando la dama. Era mucho más lógica 15...Da5! aprovechando que no se puede Td3 porque el Alfil Negro toma esa casilla.
Mar-15-19  edubueno: Si 15... Da5?; entonces las blancas atacan con 16.d5 cxd5 17.Rxd5 b5 18.Rxb5 Qa4 19.Bd6 Rc8 20.Bb3 Qa6 21.Rd1 Rc6 22.Ba3 Qc8 23.h5 Bh7 24.f4 Qc7 25.f5 Qf4+ 26.Kb1 Qc7 27.Qd2
