Aug-27-04  wall: 26.fxe3 doesn't look good. 26.Qxe3 looks better. Perhaps time to trade queens with 29.Qxe5 instead of 29.Qh4 and losing a pawn to 29...Qxb2+. 33.Qh5?? is losing. Perhaps 33.Qg3. After the game move 33...Rf2, Black threatens 34...Qxc2+ 35.Ke1 Qd2 mate.
Apr-13-05  Rocafella: For white, what about 17.Rh1?
Feb-08-06  dfelix: If 17.Rh1 then black plays Nxe5 as in the game. It might be an improvement seeing as how white eventually played Rh1, yet used two moves to get his bishop to b5. Perhaps the point of 17.Bd3 is that after 18.dxe5 white threatens Qh7+ Kf7 Bg6+ Ke7 Qxg7+ Rf7 Qx7#. He also might have wanted to keep his rook on the d-file in hopes of tactically harassing black's queen on d8.
