I am looking for a game played by Seirawan. I remember in the position that Black was heading for a Botvinnik formation(c5 and e5 but without d6 yet), and White had sacrificed a knight on e5 for an attack. I am 80% sure that Seirawan was Black.

  • Do you mean the pawn structure with c5-d6-e5? Or are you referring to the Semi-slav variation. Aug 14 '20 at 1:40

Probably this one:

[FEN ""]
[Site "it"]
[Date "1993.??.??"]
[Round "7"]
[White "Granda Zuniga Julio E PER"]
[Black "Seirawan, Yasser"]
[Result "1-0"]
[BlackElo "2595"]
[ECO "A30h"]
[NIC "EO 40.6.2"]
