    Actually I can save the pawn like this: 27...Ba5 28.cxb5 Qe8 (28...Qd8 29.Rb3 Bxd2 30.Qxd2 (30.Nxd2 Bxb5 31.Rcb1+-) 30...Bxb5 31.Rcb1 Qd7 32.Qa5 Ba6 33.Rxb7 Rxb7 34.Rxb7 Bxb7 35.Nd2 but this position is still very unpleasant for Black despite the fact that the pawns are symetrical.

    I like both games. In the game against Michael Adams I think that even after ... Ba5 black does not manage to save the material (like it was said in the commentary) as after cxb5 Qd8;Rb3 Bxd2;Nxd2 Bxb5;Rcb1 Ba4;Rxb7 Rxb7 white can take Qxa4 and the rook on b1 is protected by the knight from d2 and white is one piece up.

    Again, very good examples, nice lesson.

    gotta love the commentaries of Bojkov and Dzidzinchashvilli. There's a great deal of strategic thinking conveyed instructively.

    There are those positions in which a lower rated player is not sure what path to take. Understanding the strength, weaknesses and potential targets of a position just isn't enough sometimes to come up with a decent plan. After watching this video I think I'm better equipped to choose a strategic plan in these kind of positions.
