Considering the omissions pointed o\it, it is only natural that White should get the advantage, especially after they brought the QR into play and posted the B on the diagonal at Kt2. The interesting stage of the game,commences where White gives; up a pawn for the attack with 33. Q to K4. White, however, lost valuable time with 39. R to Kt6 and 40. P to R3. They could have finished brilliantly with 39. P to K6. There are a number of sacrificing' variations, all in favour of White.
