From the "Here's something you don't see every day" file...GM Gata Kamsky getting outplayed. Our author GM Mikhalevski accepts the doubled pawns, but he gets a bevy of positional compensation. His open file, 7th-rank invasion, dominant bishop, and more active knight more than make up for having one more pawn island. Still, it takes a lot to beat a man who has been World Champion Candidate several times. Watch and see how, you know, in case you ever play for the title!
