  Sneaky: 20.Re6!!
Dec-19-03  seoulmama: Well, I think one exclam is enuff. It is rather basic, really. The game is beautfiful in its whole.
Dec-30-03  Toobs: For some reason Seoulmama, I don't think you would have seen that combo. Not to discredit your skills, but it was pretty nice!!
Apr-06-04  seoulmama: With all do respect Toobs, I would have.
Apr-06-04  seoulmama: It is not a forced sequence of moves, but rather a well evaluated shot.
Jun-30-14  SpiritedReposte: Re6 would be easy to find in a guess the move puzzle, but to find it in the flow of the game, that is awesome.

Dreev had recent experience with this line having played two short draws with 11 Rd1 and then trying 11 d5 in a rapid game against Karpov. In that game he had played 14 Ng5 and had gone on to lose; 14 Bb5 was prepared afterwards. It should be noted that 12..Bxd5? 13 0-0-0 would have been asking for trouble. Black's game went downhill after 18..Bc8?; better would have been 18..Qc7 when after 19 Ng5..hxg 20 hxg..f5 21 gxf..Nxf6 22 Bxf6..Rxf6 23 Qh7+..Kf8 when White has nothing more than a perpetual. Franco thought Black would have had defensive resources after 19..f6!? 20 Qg6..Qc7 when Black's position is difficult but not lost; on the other hand 19..g6?! opening up the long diagonal was clearly hopeless.

This game was voted the 4th best game of Informant 87.

A few days after this game at the Russian Club Cup Dreev played 14 Bb5 again against Jakovenko who responded 14..Qc7 and White went on to win (game not included in this database).
