Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-30-17  clement41: Nice fighting draw
Dec-26-17  Howard: Seirawan claimed in Inside Chess that 15.Qe6 was a big mistake, which gave Black a won position.

But, I don't see the "win".

  WorstPlayerEver: In those days Seirawan could write what he wanted. SF8 also gives 15. Qe6

  WorstPlayerEver: 19 ply 15 seconds. 15. Qe6 Qc8 16. Qxd5

Black threatens Qc8/Nd8/e6 and is a pawn up with a strong center. Qe6 is the only move to get the pawn back afaics.
