  Chessical: A very well played game by Rotlewi that anticipates much later trends in the Gruenfeld: Korchnoi vs Huebner, 1986.

Fahrni makes no conspicuous mistakes, but he cannot engineer a successful pawn break against his opponent's powerful centre.

Modern games have gone: <13... e5> 14. dxe5 Qxe5 15. Bf4 Qh5 16. g4 Qa5 17. Bd6; but here too White has a substantial advantage.

With <17...c5?!> Fahrni breaks up White centre pawns, but his opponent continues to dominate the space created.

<22...Ne6> seems a very unattractive move, but Fahrni has no real alternatives. If he attempted to maintain the Knight, it would be a hopeless endeavour:

<22... Rac8> 23. Rdc1 b6 24. Rc4 Qb5 25. b4
