Sicilian Keres Attack 6.g4 Antipov

Grabbing a little pawn is dangerous if your chess opponent has developed everything and you have not. This Sicilian Keres Attack gave Black an open h-file after 7...hxg5. After 13...Rxh2, Grandmaster Mikhail Antipov boldly played 14.Nd5!? Ylon Schwartz tried not to open up the center. Even so, White came crashing through with 16.Nxe6!
