  Benzol: According to Alex Pishkin's book this game was played at the Chigorin Memorial at Sochi in 1965. Anyone know for sure?
Jan-19-09  jrofrano: 29. ... Nb3+?? absolutely terrible...this is a move i don't think I'd ever consider...especially when you are playing a guy like nezh...who everybody knows is extremely tactical and dynamic. This move was probably played in time looks like a cheap shot...granted i don't think black has much because of the ever looming threat of Ne7+ winning the exchange.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Well, I don't know if 29...Nb3+ is that bad--Lien is already in huge trouble with a 2-pawn deficit and the threats of Ne7+ and Nd6 hanging over his head. After 32...Bxd3, Black does threaten a perpetual, and the escape from that is not easy to find.
