Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-03  Rookpawn: If White instead plays 18. Nxf4, then, after either Qg5 or Qh6, he threatens a discoverd attack on the queen by a move of his knight. Also, a move of the Black queen to any square other than g5 permits White to capture the pawn on g4.

  Cyphelium: Rookpawn> 18. Nxf4 seems like a bad move to me. Black plays 18.- Nxd4! and now

A/ 19. Nxh5 Nxe2+ 20. Kf1 Nxe4 black has a piece and is easily winning.

B/ 19. Qd1 Qc5 20. Qxg4+ Kh8 and now threat is Nf3 double check:

B1 21. Qxh4?? Nf3+ wins the queen.

B2 21. Be3 Nxe4 is also really bad, for example white can't play 22. Qxh4 Nf3+ 23. gxf3 Qxe3+ 24. Kg2 Rg8+ 25. Kh3 Qxf3+ with mate.

B3 21. Bb2 Bf6 and white will fall apart because of all Nxe4, Bxb2 and Nf3/e2 double check threats that's just all over the place.

C/ 19. Qd3 might be best, but still...

C1 True, 19.- Qc5 now seems bad because of 20. Bxh7+ Kh8 21. Be3 Bf6 22. Rd1, but

C2 19.- Qe5! and black is on top. 20. Bxh7+ Kh8 (threat 21. -Qe1+ 22. Qf1 Bf2 mate) 21. Bb2 Ne2+ 22. Qxe2 Qxb2 with double threat against h7 and b2 is cheerless for white. Also, 20. Bb2 Nxe4 21. Qxd4 (21. Bxd4 Qxf4)Bf2+ 22. Qxf2 Qxb2 is pretty amusing: 22. Qe1 Qd4+ 23. Kf1 Nd2+ etc.

Apr-10-03  Rookpawn: It appears that the source of White's trouble is playing 20. Bxh7+. But even if he does not play it, he is still in a tight spot. Therefore, one must conclude that taking the f-pawn is bad, whether it is taken with the bishop or with the knight.
