  Sneaky: 15 ...hxg5 16. Nxg5+ Kg8 17. Qd5+! (just to show off) cxd5 18. Bd5#

  tpstar: <SamusAran> If 15 ... hxg5 16. Nxg5+ Kh6 17. Nf7+ (double check) & 18. Nxd8 wins the Queen. Black quickly got in a cramped position starting with 9 ... Ne8?!, but I believe resignation was premature due to 15 ... hxg5 16. Nxg5+ Qxg5! 17. Qxg5 Nxc5 with 3 pieces for the Queen and a fascinating middlegame ahead.

  Dudley: Good point but Koltanowski would have probably pulled off the win anyway,white has a lead in development.
