  fredthebear: The video is a partial game (7 minutes worth) between Dmitry Andreikin vs Nikita Vitiugov where commentator Evgenij Miroshnichenko recalls his debacle against Karpov.
Sep-25-21  tonsillolith: <18. Bxe6!> It seems that the onus is on the player who gives up their bishop for a knight to justify the exchange. Why here? Certainly the knight could become a nuisance on d4, <a ghost>, as Nimzowitsch may have put it. But the timing, after <17...Re8>, suggests that the immediate reason is to prevent Black's untangling by <18...Ndf8>, after which a capture on e6 can be answered by either the bishop or the knight.
