  Peligroso Patzer: The following 1991 loss by Brodsky to a 15- or 16-year-old Vladimir Kramnik is cited in the first chapter of Aagaard's "Easy Guide to the Sveshnikov Sicilian" as "in my (Aagaard's) view the most fantastic game ever played in the Sveshnikov ...":

M Brodsky vs Kramnik, 1991

The following game featured in today's puzzle (after 34. ... Bf6) concludes with a nice combination by this under-appreciated player:
