  An Englishman: Good Evening: The position after 8.Rb1 is one of the most heavily analyzed in the English Opening and generally leads to all-out war. I should know because I used to play it a lot as White. What's odd to me is that the position after 15...Ng4 first appears in the CG database in 1990. I reached the same position a few time in the Seventies. Black should have taken his King off the a2-g8 diagonal with 16...Kh8 or Kh7. Eljanov exploits the omission with a little combination that leads to a pair of overpowering Bishops and soon forces resignation.
