Jun-22-05  notyetagm: A shot from out of the blue, 13 ... ♗xh3!, the <principle variation> going 14 gxh3?? ♕g3+ 15 ♔h1 ♕xh3+ 16 ♔g1 ♕g3+ 17 ♔h1 and now both 17 ... ♗xd4 (threatening 18 ... ♕h3#) and 17 ... ♖e5 (threatening 18 ... ♖h5#) look winning for Black.

Crafty, can you help me out here!?

Jun-22-05  aw1988: That looks correct.
Jun-22-05  notyetagm: Yes, Fritz 8 gives 17 ... ♗xd4 an eval of -3.06 and 17 ... ♖e5 gets slightly less, so 17 ... ♗xd4 is the stronger move. That line then continues 17 ... ♗xd4 18 ♕xd4 ♖e5 19 ♕xe5 dxe5 and Black is up a queen and two pawns for a rook and a bishop (Fritz 8 eval: -3.56 ).

Dec-06-18  Roark: Great creative game by Stein! I even enjoyed the very original 19...b5!?
