May-26-08  The Chess Express: Black wins a ♙ with 13. f6 14. 0-0-0 fxe5 15. Qxe5 Qxe5 16. fxe5 Rxe5 17. Bd3 Re3 ∞
May-27-08  Cyphelium: <The Chess Express> It seems like you are analysing something else than a 13th move alternative for black, since many of your moves or not possible, i.e. white cannot castle long with a bishop still on c1, black cannot play Rxe5 since the black rooks are still on their starting squares etc. I guess it's not move nr 13 you are analysing, but I haven't been able to figure out what you mean. (If you do suggest 13.- f6 for black, I believe 14. exf6 ♗xf6 15. ♕xe6+ dxe6 16. ♗d2 is clearly better for white.)
May-28-08  The Chess Express: Indeed, I must have posted to the wrong game LOL. That's what I get for late night analyzing. I guess it's good to know that somebody reads my posts at least :)

Anyway, after 22. Qf3 Rac8 black looks better to me.

White might improve with 19. Nb5. For example 19. Qd7 20. Rac1 Rac8 21. Bb2 (21. exf6 Bxf6 22. Bc5 also looks good.) fxe5 22. fxe5 Bxe5 23. Bxe5 Rxe5 24. Nxa7 Rce8 25. Nc6

and black's ♙'s look more precarious. 25. Re2 26. a4 Qg4 27. Qf3 etc.
