  tpstar: 16 ... bxc6 17. Raxd1 or 16 ... Qd7 17. Bxd7+ leaves White up a piece.
Oct-28-05  Chess Addict: Looks like an early blunder.
Black should've played through the end.
Oct-21-10  akale86: 15..Qxd1????
Aug-21-11  TheTamale: This had to smart for Prins. White, wielding the Catalan, opening of the ultra-pacifist, scores an 16 move win. Ouch.
