Sep-02-09  nelech: instead of 25 Be4 what's happening if 25 Bg5 ?

  Sularus: <nelech>

if you mean. 25. ... Bxg5, then white has
26. hxg5
threatening both 27. Nf6+ winning the queen or mate

Sep-02-09  nelech: ok thanks sularus i was only focused on 26 Nxg5

lets continue your line
26 hxg5 f5 27 Nf6+ Rxf6 28 gxf6 Be6 29 Qxg6+ etc

Sep-02-09  sfeuler: <nelech> How about instead of 27.Nf6+ we just take the Rook on f8 - 27.Nxf8 Rxf8 28.exd5 and we're up the exchange?
May-19-12  joeysilv: How about 23...Kxh7 ??

24.Qh6+ Kg8 25.Qxg6+ Kh8 and white is clearly better.
