  chancho: This game was definitely played in the grand manner.
Jan-28-07  morphyvsfischer: Nice to see both the e4 and b4 blows against the hanging pawns. 12...f5 may be perhaps a better chance for Black, although 13 Ba6 does give white better chances. 16...Nf6? 17 Ba5; 16...h6 is necessary. 18...dxe4 19 Qh6 Nf6 20 Ng5 Re8 21 Nxh7! wins; in the game, 21...c4 22 Bxc4 Rxc4 23 Rxc4 dxc4 24 Rxd8 Rxd8 does not save black; 22...Bxd5 23 Be4 Bd6 Qh6 wins; 23...f6 is slightly better, but still White wins.

  hesyrett: Based on morphyvsfischer's comment, an improvement for Black would be 12...a6 with the idea of 13...f5 once the Ba6 counter is prevented. 12...Nxc3 is the move that starts Black down the slippery slope to defeat. After 12 Qe2 Black has more space in the center and on the K-side, and must find a way to hold onto it.
