  sleepyirv: Isn't there another game where a bishop pins a d2 rook to the king alongside a rook on d1, leaving White tied up?

  Phony Benoni: <sleepyirv> You may be thinking of Kaplan vs Bronstein, 1975
Premium Chessgames Member
  sleepyirv: Thank you, <Phony Benoni>! That is the game the I was thinking of. '75 was a good year for rook tie-ups.
Apr-19-15  Delboy: White maybe thought he was winning when he played 16. f5. From then on Chekhow starts squeezing him like a python.
Apr-07-18  SpiritedReposte: Quite the bind. After being what looked like a pawn up in broad daylight.
