 In this game an obsession with the f-file, and especially f7, pays off well. Of all my games, this is the one that has been most discussed, and it was featured in Chess Informant. The play is of course far from perfect, but it illustrates the concept of pressure well. I teach my students to pressure their opponents because under pressure we all make mistakes.

The game has other lessons as well. After head-hunting for most of the game, the resolution comes with a standard exchange into winning endgame plan.


I think you'll enjoy this game and learn a lot. It may not be my best game, but it remains one of my favorites.
