    Remardable!! A grandmaster can really calculate well and the sub-variation and many candadate moves. Yes! Grandmaster do see ahead in a position and sometime 15 to 18 moves to deep, that what make a grandmaster.

    I think it's a really important point that you bring up about the way strong players go through their calculations. I guess many people have the misconception that GMs calculate like every variation 15-20 moves ahead, but I just don't think that's the case. Sometimes, the position is just worse, or even losing, and they know that they have to do something even if they don't have time to try to see every possible response at a far distance. But if you know that playing it safe will lose the game, it makes sense to just strike out and cause some turmoil in the position - and as you demonstrated in this game, it can even be used to bluff your opponent into choosing an inferior move because they are scared that they can't understand your total plan. This actually happens on every level - I can't tell you how many times I made an unsound (I realized later) sacrifice or positional move only to have my opponent refuse it because of fear - but it's nice to see that it occurs even on such a high level as this.
