Jan-01-05  Knight13: 13... Kd8 is better. 13... 0-0 is met by 14. Nf6+, which is better for white. Good game.

  Honza Cervenka: <13... Kd8 is better. 13... 0-0 is met by 14. Nf6+, which is better for white.> After 13...Kd8 14.Nd6 white has a lot of compensation for sacced piece as black's Qs Rook and Bishop are out of play for a long time. 13...0-0 14.Nf6+ Kh8 15.Bxf4 Bg7 is probably better than that. Black's position is not very comfortable but with extra piece it seems to be viable. At least I see no clear win for white here.
Jul-26-09  just a kid: <mastersavely>Theorists have shown that White has compensation for the sacrificed knight,but not much more.
