Jan-09-13  Nerwal: A dream Richter-Rauzer for white. Besides all the thematic content and the sacrifices, the moves 14. a4 and 18. Qa2 were not obvious at all.

  plang: 11 h4!? was a new idea; 11 Bxf6 is the most popular continuation. 13..Bxf6? would have been refuted by 14 Qxd6..Qxd6 15 Rxd6..Bxc3 16 Rxc3 and if 16..Bxe4 then 17 Rxa6! wins for White. After 14..bxa? Black was in trouble; better was 14..b4 15 Na2..a5 with an unclear position. 21 Bxb5! was a nice shot initiating the decisive attack; voted the 3rd best game in Informant 78.
