May-17-04  Checkmate4327: Is 9...bxc6 better?
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <Checkmate4327> White's already up 1 Pawn (6. dc) and after 9 ... bxc6!? 10. Qxd4 up 2 Pawns (10 ... Nd5 11. Bd2), although they will become tripled c Pawns after 10 ... Bxc3+. Or else 10. Qxd4 Bxc5 11. Qg4 and it's back to 1 Pawn (11 ... Bb4 12. Bd2; 11 ... 0-0 12. 0-0).
May-18-04  Checkmate4327: 10...Nf5 is an improvement on your line, tpstar. Then, 11 Qc4 Ba6 12 Qb3 Qb5 and Black has a winning attack. Or 11 Qd3 Ba6 12 Qd1 Bxc3+ 13 bxc3 Qxc3+ 14 Bd2 Qc4 and Black is winning.

  tpstar: Yowza! That attack came out of nowhere! Maybe 10. Qxg7 is better, and maybe someone else should answer.
May-19-04  Checkmate4327: The game Aarseth-Rittner, 6th World Correspondence Championship 1968, went 10 Qxg7 Rg8 11 Qxh7 Ba6 12 Ng5 Bxc3+ 13 Kd1 0-0-0 14 Nxf7 d3, and White resigned. I can't find anything which can save white after 9...bxc6!
