  perfidious: Christiansen's 26....Nc4 lost by force, though he stood clearly worse anyway. It may well be that he didn't like the looks of 26....Nc6 27.Nxf7 Kxf7 28.e5, to mention one possibility.

The position with White to play at his 27th move seems a worthwhile POTD.

Jun-30-11  Poulsen: <perfidious><Christiansen's 26....Nc4 lost by force ...> True, eliminating the knight by 28.-,Lxe5 does not save black - since 29.Qxe5,Qf8 30.Bb4 ends the game with similar threats.
