  plang: Sakaev-Zemehman Duisburg 1992 White played 12 0-0 (game not included in this database); 12 Qd2 was new. Dreev was sceptical of 17..c5?! recommending 17..Rc8 instead. Dreev patiently played for a positional edge foregoing unclear tactical lines such as 24 Rxb5..axb 25 Bb5..Nc3 26 bxc..Rb8 27 Bd4..Bxd4+ 28 cxd..d5. 28..a5 led to the loss of a pawn but alternatives didn't look any better. 43 Kf4?..Qg1 would have actually been winning for Black as there is no defense to ..Be3+. The alternative 43..Qxf3?! would not have worked after 44 Rxa7..Qg4+ 45 Kh6..h4 and either 46 Qd5 or 46 Qg5 would have been decisive. 44..Bd8+ 45 Kh6..Kxf7 46 Qd5+..Kf8 47 Qd6+ would not have helped Black.

Very nice game by Dreev.
