Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-25-09  Maynard5: This game undergoes several distinct phases. White gets an early opening advantage, which leads to a breakthrough on the kingside starting with 17. f4. After 19. ... g6, Black's kingside is seriously compromised, and White demolishes the kingside pawns with 22. Nxf7! What is nice about this sacrifice is that it does not lead to an immediate win, but rather a superior endgame. White emerges with a rook and several pawns against two minor pieces. Great play by Kholmov.
