Oct-28-04  Hidden Skillz: why not 13...Nb4 14.dxc5 Qxc2 15.Rxb4..at least not a queen down??
Nov-23-06  Brown: Well, blitz, and after 13...Nb4 14.Ra3 seems effective.
Aug-10-08  Helios727: Looks like the poisoned pawn was truly poisoned this time.
May-11-09  sneaky pete: Position after 15.Bd3 ..

Every Russian schoolboy knows what to play here. It's so easy once you've seen it.

May-11-09  Shams: <sneaky pete> are you suggesting 15...Qxc2<?>
May-11-09  WhiteRook48: 24 Be8
Nov-29-17  QuantumMechanic: After 15.Bd3...of course Qxc2 as the fork on e2 will give -0.14 advantage for black. Quantum calculation gives black advantage of -0.14.
Jun-25-19  Everett: 15.Bd3 is a blunder. <15.Nxd4 Nxd4 16.Bb5+> wins
