Game of the Week - Sapozhnikov vs. Humphreys

Looking back at games from this spring, I was really intrigued by a game in the French Tarrasch from the Toronto Closed where White's daring pawn play was not rewarded. His early pawn sacrifice in a somewhat theoretical line just didn't turn out well at all. Try to find out where it all goes wrong!

M. Pang (1829) – A. Green (2010), Abe Yanofsky Memorial 2011

White’s previous move, 1. exd5, was a mistake—with the simple 1. Be2, he could have kept a large advantage against Black’s forlorn king. What must Black do to seize a decisive advantage?
