sigh, where is the game, ol Mamedyarov is one of my favs (he plays the modern you
know!) Never the less, our strategy is clear, after Bxc5 we play e4! after ...dxe4 we
play Nxe4, after ...Nxe4 we play Bxe4, after ...Qxd1 Rxd1 we are not only in control of
the open d file, we are heading for an advantageous end game, b4 is coming with
tempo, so is c5 - c6 and we have every reason to use our exclamation mark! (this
might be a little inaccurate cause its all in my head, but its sounds plausible and i am
sure there are many games where white has advantageously pressed home his
plus if i am not mistaken, we have a rather excellent pin against the c6 knight, and we
are not warranted in claiming an advantage?
