Mar-01-05  hkannan2000: Very good game for refuting an unsound attack.

  ketchuplover: Why not 17...Kxh6 ?
Mar-15-07  Resignation Trap: <ketchuplover> 17...Kh6 is met by 18.Qxf6+ Kh5 19.g4+ Kxg4 20 Rg1+ and Black is toast.
Mar-15-07  nimzo knight: Whats the line after 16..Kxg7 ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <nimzo knight> 16...Kxg7 is the line played here -- maybe you mean 15...Kxg7....??

In which case, 15.Nxg7 Kxg7? 16.Qd4! e5 17.Qh4 Ng4 18.f3 Qd8 19.Bg5 f6 20.Bc1 Bf4 21.Bxf4 Qd4 22.Ng3 Ne3 is one line (Geenen-Van Geldorp, Belgium 1990). There are many other possibilities but overall black comes out worse than after 15...Rd8.

Aug-14-10  harish22: I agree that this is a very good example of refuting an unsound attack. But i would give more credit to Sax in this game of trying to create something than play for a draw.
Mar-22-14  Conrad93: A draw is still better than a loss.

You can create something without it being unsound.
