Its a bit clever to be considered a cheapo
Originally posted by greenpawn34OK then, I thought it meant something like a "relatively easy tactic."
Cheapo is perhaps the wrong term.
To me a Cheapo is joke trap one plays in a lost postion.
Originally posted by greenpawn34I was referring to 32.Rc6 in this position.
Keep it in the forum, nobody is trying to score points.
Any Rooks taking a Bishop or Knight is an Exchange Sacrifice.
These were usually made for a short term tactical gain.
ie: RxNf6 to open up a King postion.
The exchange sacs Petrosian made (RxN) were deeper than that.
No percievable tactical gain but a better placed Knight and a lastin ...[text shortened]... nger, etc.
There is no way it can be analsed so the Petrsosian Sac is all the more
Originally posted by philidor positionyay, i got it, after the greenpawn dude hinted that it was the back rank, otherwise i also was looking at the king queen diagonal, but it took maybe five minutes. i doubt i would have found it in a game, although, there is a possibility that i could have fluked it!
(It turns out cheapo was not the correct terminology here, thanks to Tyrannosauruschex and Greenpawn for pointing that out).

Before you look at the game, try to find the cheapo yourself. Naka has just played 41...Ng7. You are Aronian. White to move.

In this position, Kasparov annotates the move 31...Qc6 as "a typical Petrosian exchange sacrifice." (don't be surprised if you can't find the exact words, as my edition isn't in English).
I thought this was very similar to the 32.Rc6 by Aro b4 0-1 [/pgn]
aargh, what kind of pgn viewer is this?!
