Sep-07-04  xiaolin: hmm he could lose a piece move ten BxN -NxB Qxn
Sep-07-04  azaris: 10...♗xd4 11. ♘xd4 ♕xd4? 12. ♗c3! regains the piece and White nets a massive attack to boot. Maybe someone can work out a winning line for White if Black retreats the queen?
Jul-30-05  CAPA2422: NO xiaolin, because white has ♕xknight on g4 as a follow up. 3 moves in advance isn't going to cut it.
Jun-08-06  Randomiser: On move 22, surely White 23.R(c7)- f7, threatens mate in 2 given Q - D8 and R = f8+.

What can black do?

Jun-08-06  rover: How about 22.Rxf7 Rxf7 23.Qd8+ Kg7?

  tamar: 23 Qe7 instead of 23 Re7 would win, because Bh6 will win the exchange or the f7 pawn.
