  Shams: 16...h6? is feeble-- but it leads to a simple, lovely, and very instructive finish, one for the ages-- white's knight attacks the light squares mercilessly, f5, g6, then f7 twice. A knockout combo to be studied. And a most appealing final position. Lista, you are thanked for your cooperation.

  heuristic: 22...Be4 23.Bxe4+ Nxe4 24.Qg6+ Kh8 25.Qxe4.
BLK is lost, but WHT has no mate.

19...Bd8 is weak.
the Rs need to be connected and the B needs to defend the Kside pawns.

19...Rfe8 20.Qf7 (20.Nh4 Nf8) Bf8 21.Nh4 and again Be4 stops the attack.
