  Honza Cervenka: <Whitehat1963> Thanks. I have already seen it. It is a wonderful game.
Feb-11-05  Albertan: Grinfield could have played 17...Nxe3 then after 18.Qe1 Nxg2 19.Qxe6+ Kh8 20.Kxg2 Qc7 the position is about equal.

So did Grinfield make her main mistake on move 22 when she played 22...Rb6? It appears she could have played 22...Rf6 instead and been okay ie. 22...Rf6 23.Re6!? Nxe6 24.Re1 Kh8 25.Rxe6 Rxe6 26.Qxe6 Qxe6 27.Nxe6 Rb6 28.Ng5 b4 with a balanced position.
