  fredthebear: Castling on opposite sides can lead to violent games!!

For those wondering about the finish... it's White to move but the White bishop pin has failed.

1) If the White bishop captures the Black queen on her home square, the intrusive Black knight will capture the White queen w/a fork. This exchange of queens leaves Black with the opportunity to capture any of three White pieces on the back ranks (the capturing bishop and either rook).

2) If White first moves the queen to safety, the intrusive Black knight captures the attacking bishop which safeguards the Black queen. The Black knight has won a pawn and a minor piece.

3) If the White c-pawn captures the intrusive Black knight, the Black queen captures the attacking bishop with check on the dark-squared diagonal and a lead in development.

4) If the White rook captures the Black d-pawn, then the other Black knight recaptures 12...NxRd4 winning the exchange and leaving much the same options described above still on the table.

The unpin by the Black knight leaves Black in the better position.

I would venture to say that few of us are--it is plain on reflexion to any halfway competent player that White blundered.
