  zydeco: <ughaibu> If 19....Kh8 20.Bf5. Black defends the knight and, after capturing on d7, white has 22.Ne5 hitting f7. If the knight moves, white plays 21.Ne5 and has combinative ideas against f7. Kottnauer's defense looks reasonable but it's hard to anticipate 21.Bc8!!

Szabo criticizes 15....c5. He'd planned to meet 15....Qh5 with 16.Ba6 and white has an initiative on the queenside.

31....Nb6 is a time-trouble blunder. 31....Kd6 would have held on a little longer.

  maxi: Such clever moves as 21.Bc8 are hard to anticipate.
