  Ed Caruthers: Why does Black resign?

  azaris: 13...♗xf6 14. exf5+ and the rook on a8 is hanging. 13...gxf6 14. ♘d5! ♕b8 15. exf5 and White will win back the piece with a fierce attack.

  Willem Wallekers: It was too early to resign, after 13 ... Nxb3+ 14. axb3 gxf6 15. Nd5 Qd8(!) 16. Nxe7 Kxe7 17. exf5+ Be6 18. Qb7+ Qd7 19. Rxe6+!, White wins the Queen, but were both players seeing this already?? Black could still hope for a mistake by White.

  acirce: <Willem Wallekers> White wins no queen in that line after 19..fxe6. Better is 18.fxe6 or 18.Qd5, for example. But I agree she could have played on a few more moves after 13.Bxf6.

  Willem Wallekers: <acirce> Actually I made a typing/copying error. I ment 18. fxe6 fxe6 19. Qb7+ Qd7 20. Rxe6.
And indeed 18. Qd5 also wins.
So I couldn't agree more. :-)

  acirce: Oh! Right, then we are indeed in full agreement...
Jul-20-05  DanRoss53: Brilliant play by White! 12. ♘f5!! seals it. If Black does not play 12... exf5, White can continue 13. ♘xg7+! ♔f8 14. ♗xf6 ♗xf6 15. ♕xf6; if Black tries to protect the g7 pawn, with 12... ♖g8?, White has 13. ♘xe7 ♔xe7 14. e5 dxe5 which threatens the Rook on a1 and the Knight on f6. It looks like the best continuation at the end position is 13... gxf6 14. ♘d5 ♕b8 15. exf5 ♖a7 16. ♕c3 ♘xb3+ 17. axb3 ♗e6 18. fxe6 O-O 19. ♘xf6+ ♗xf6 20. ♕xf6 fxe6 21. ♕xe6+ ♔h8 giving white a clearly won game.
