  plang: Another day in the wacky world of the anti-meran variation. This game was voted the 5th best in Informant #69. 18..d4 seems to be a specialty of Ivanov; he has played this move in several games. 22 Bf4 was new but Assev probably had not anticipated the rook sacrifice 22..Rh5!?. I'm not sure what the computers would do with the position after 28 Rd7; white is up 2 rooks but, clearly, the 4 queenside passed pawns and well developed king are worth something.

  whiteshark: White has ♖♖ vs 1 ♙ but is fighting for a draw. It's really incredible if you look at the position after <28.Rxd7>.
