  InspiredByMorphy: The game is not won for black yet. I can find no mate . 16. Ke1 Ng2+ 17. Kd1 Qg4+ 18. Be2 Qxe2+ 19. Kxe2 Nf4+ 20. Kf2 Nxd5 and white is the exchange up (a rook up at the moment, but the whites knight on h8 is not saveable), and mating threats from black are long gone.

  Cyphelium: <IBM> White loses his queen after 16. Ke1 Ng2+ 17. Kd1 Bg4+ 18. Be2 Bxe2+ 19. Kxe2 Nf4+.

  InspiredByMorphy: <Cyphelium> Thanks. For some reason I thought the queen was on f4. I guess thats what I get for analyzing half asleep late at night!

  MagisterMusicae: ¿Qué pasa si las blancas mueven 16. ♔g3?
Jul-16-12  hrocca7: I think if white moves 16.Kg3 black must move 16...Qg4+ 17.Kf2 Qf5+ 18.Kg3 and so on. I also think 6.Kf1 is better than 6.Kxf2
Apr-24-14  Ghu: Analysis confirms that 16.Kg3 is indeed a draw. Black has nothing better than repetition.

  RandomVisitor: Do any of these improvements hold?

12.Qh5+ g6 13.Nxg6 hxg6 14.Qxg6+ Ke7 15.Qg5+ Kd6 16.Nc3 with perhaps white advantage

11.Qe3 Nxh1 12.Bb5 Ke7 13.d3 Bh3 14.Kxh1 with perhaps white advantage

10.Qe1 Qd4+ 11.Qe3 Nxh1 12.Bb5 Ke7 13.d3 Bh3 14.Kxh1 etc

9...Nd4 10.hxg3 Qxg3+ 11.Kf1 Qf4+ 12.Kg2 Qg5+ =

8.Qe2 Nd4 9.Qe3 Nxc2 10.Qe2 Nd4 11.Qe3 Nc2 12.Qe2 Nd4 =

7.Ke3 Qh4 8.g3 Nxg3 9.hxg3 Qd4+ 10.Kf3 is likely a hard fought draw
