  Chessical: After missing <17.Nd7!> which should have won, Rabinovich then lets slip his saving clause of:

<20.Nxf7!!> Rxf7+ 21.Kh1 Rxf1+ 22.Rxf1+ Ke8 23.Qf3 (exploiting the vulnerable K-side squares) Nxe5 24.Qf8+ Kd7 25.Be6+ Kxe6 26.Qxd8

Mar-20-05  Knezh: Does anyone agree that 11.Bxf6 gxf6 12. Qc3 is better than what was played?

  samvega: <chessical> I'm not sure I understand your first line: white plays 16.a3 and 17.Rad1 to prepare 18.Nd7+ Kg8 19.Nxc5 (but black gets in h5 and Rh6). How is the immediate 17.Nd7+ anymore winning than it was on move 14? Do you just mean that 17.Nd7+ Kg8 18.Nxc5 (which he could have had at move 15 also) is better than what was actually played?

I really like your second line. I think 20.Nxf7 could be classified as an x-ray: the rook at f1 is in effect attacking the black king, despite the intervening black rook.

  samvega: <knezh> After 11.Bxf6 gxf6 12.Qc3, 12..Ne5 screens the pawn at f6. And compensation for the wrecked pawns, black has the half-open g-file. Your continuation may not be any worse, but it is not (to me) obviously superior to the actual play.
Oct-11-05  millert: I agree with the 11. Bxf6 line. Ne5 screens nothing. White will continue with Nd4, Kh1, f4. White has a space advantage and superior piece placement and the better pawn structure. Black has no pieces on the kingside to attack with.

11. Nxf6+ would also be good as White can work the pin on f6 with the same moves he uses after Bxf6.
