Jun-09-03  clifford: i mean 22. Nf6+
Jun-09-03  jmcd2002: Doesn't 22. Nf6+ lose to 22...Bxf6? If 23 Rxd8+, then 22...Bxd8, and if 23 exf6, then 23...Rxd1+.
Aug-27-04  wall: Can White win a pawn with 19.Nxb7. An ending with opposite colored bishops usually draws. After 27...Bxe5, then 28.b4 Bc3 29.b5 draws.
Aug-27-04  samvega: Wouldn't 19.Nxb7 fail to 19..Be2? Hence 19.Bc3.

  PawnSac: <samvega: Wouldn't 19.Nxb7 fail to 19..Be2? Hence 19.Bc3.>

yes you are correct.

19.Nxb7 Be2 20.Nxd8 Rxd8!
(not Bxd1? 21.Nxc6! and it appears white holds the extra pawns) 21.f4 (black threatens Bh6 or Nxe5) Bxd1 22.Rxd1 Ne3 23. Re1 Nxg2 and black wins.

It is hard to find an improvement to white's 21.f4
if 21. Bxc6 Nxe5 22. Bg2 Bxd1 23. Rxd1 Nc4
