  Honza Cervenka: 20.Qf5 d5 21.b3 would have kept some advantage for white as both black Knigts would be quite bad then. After a few suboptimal moves of Reti Spielmann activated his pieces and easily turned the table.

  fredthebear: 15...Nb6 not only saves the en prise Black knight, but also traps the White bishop from safely retreating. The exchange sequence comes out equal points with Black giving up rook and f-pawn for knight and bishop.

The pair of Black knights continue to haunt as White cannot take advantage of it's central passer.
