Mar-29-06  suenteus po 147: A very odd looking final move, but it wins Tartakower white's queen.
Dec-23-08  YoungEd: Cute trap at the end. I guess White had to play 15. g3 to guard against the mate threat while still defending the B on g5. The game would be relatively even after that; maybe a small plus for Black.

  fredthebear: Another "Remove the Defender" tactic in the famous Sicilian Siberian Trap.

Allowing an opposing knight to penetrate a free square in one's own camp is usually a real kick in the pants. In this case, Black penetrates with both knights to threaten Qxh2#. White can close the diagonal with 16.g3 but then would lose his queen. If 16.Q moves, then 16...NxNf3+ eliminates the defender of the h2-mating square.

Here's the 16.NxNd4 version:

  fredthebear: 15.h3 does not help. Black continues on with his "Siberian Trap" plan of 15...Nd4! and captures next move.
