Feb-16-06  Frankly: This little gem I discovered as part of the discussion of Yusupov-Dokhoian 1993 in Igor Stohl's Instructive Modern Chess Masterpieces. Nice sharp play in the Marshall gambit.

  plang: 8..c5!? is one of the main lines of the Marshall Gambit (the other Marshall Gambit); Sveshnikov has played it on several occasions. 12 h4!? had been played by Piket in his win agains Van der Werf several months earlier though after the game Piket thought 12 Ne2 was stronger. Van der Werf had played 12..Qa5; 12..Qf6 was new. 16..Nfc6? lost by force; Dreev recommended 16..Re8 17 0-0-0 and here Black can't play 17..Nf5? due to 18 Bxf5..exf 19 Rhe1..f4 20 Ne4..Qf5 21 Bxe5 and wins. Sveshnikov admitted after the game that he had evaluated the position after 22..Ba6 as acceptable for Black but he badly underestimated the strength of 23 Qe3.
