I think I'm too used to your vids Dennis, I can always hear a slight cheekiness in the question "where should the piece retreat?" that I know automatically that the answer is not to :D Thanks for the vid!

A happy retroactive Thanksgiving to you as well. Oh, and a premature Merry Christmas while I'm at it :D

I have enjoyed going over Almasi's games since I first heard of him back around '98 or '99. He has had some very sharp tactical encounters and this game shows off his calculating abilities. Thanks for bringing it to us.

BTW, I have played this line twice with White (one game was very easy after ...Nh5), but were talking completely different skill sets by way of comparison.

This kind of thing happens a lot in class play, but often the player is unprepared. I recently made such an unprepared provocation against a master and survived only because he got too greedy.

Thanks also, because my new opening repertoire for white can end up in a Maroczy bind accelerated Dragon by transposition from a symmetric English. I might actually see this. (1.c4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.d4 cxd4 5.Nxd4 Nc6 6.e4 Nxd4 7.Qxd4 . . .)

Is this game published anywhere on the internet? I'd like to get the game in pgn format, but haven't found it anywhere.

Oh, and great lesson, Dennis! The exchange sac was quite provocative and evidently completely sound.

Found the game score here. I had trouble because I had searched with an alternative, but less common, anglicization of Guseinov's name.
