Tripled pawns aren't much use...
A fairly short game that sees Vassily Ivanchuk tear apart an unorthodox opening by White with a series of pawn sacrifices. The final game position was featured in the Times' Chess column recently, which brought the game to my attention.
Both sides seemed to break a lot of the "rules" of opening play. Black broke them "in a better way". Whatever that means. Let your play be guided by the demands of the position, I guess, is the lesson here. And it's yet another example of how bad a position with tripled pawns can be.
