  twin phoenix: typically very good! pretty game.
Apr-19-07  nubilus: Wouldn't 17...Kxe7 be much preferable to Qxe7? After Qe1+ blacks king would block the rook,but it seems better than losing it.

  twin phoenix: Line 1 17.--,KxE7 18. Q-E1+, K-d7? 19. N-e4+, K-c8 20. R-a8+ wins the queen and maybe more...(N-b4 hangs too i think...) Line 2 17.--,KxE7 18. Q-E1+,K-f8 19. Qxb4+, K-g8 20. Qxd4 gives white 2 peices for a rook and white still has a very strong attack. i do agree with you that this may be preferable to what was played, however. i may be missing something though...
Apr-20-07  nubilus: I was thinking along your line 2. I agree that Kxe7 is not winning and after 20.Qxd4 black would have to protect the backrank with Rb8 or get his queen off the d file. Then first open up a space for his king maybe h6, exchange queens and get that rook out... none of which would be a easy task, but it could be a interesting game.
