Sep-07-05  molinov: 17.Nc5 thickens the plot.After 17.... dxc5 18.Bb3+ Kf8 19.dxe5 c4 (19... fxe5 20.Bxc5) 20.exf6 cxb3 21.fxe7 Nxe7 22.f4 Kg8 23.fxg5 Nf5 24.g6 Nh6 25.Bxh6 white should win.
May-12-08  mateifl: Wow, I took a random game from "200 Open Games" by Bronstein, and found this brilliancy !!! 17. Nc5 is a beautiful move.
Sep-29-13  zydeco: <molinov> The idea is: 20.Bxc4 Bb5 21.Ba2! Bxf1 22.exf6 and if 22....gxf6 23.Qh6+ forces mate or if 22....Bb5 then 23.Qh7
