Aug-13-05  Whitehat1963: White seems to jump out on top but loses his way in the middlegame somehow. Where did he lose this one? (Opening of the Day)

  GrahamClayton: The key point of the exchange sacrifice offered by Velimirovic is the total domination he gets over the white squares, as seen in the variation 18. ♗xh6 ♗e6 19. ♕a4 ♗h3.
