  Yelena Dembo: I could get a better position by playing 19.dxc7! Counter blow and then Nd6 comes with check!! Anyway, he is a good player!

  keypusher: <Yelena Dembo> I showed this game to my computer and it almost exploded! Wonderful, daring play by both of you.

Fritz 8 thinks your dxe7 was winning and that 19 dxc7 Qd5 20 Nd6+ Kd7 21 c8/Q+ (21 Be4 Qh5! 22 Bxb7 Bxd4+ 23 Kh1 ef ) Raxc8 22 Nxb7 ef 23 Nc5+ Ke8 24 c3 is equal.

Later on it thought 23 Rf8+ was a clear win and that after 24...Nxc4?? (better ...Qc6) 25 Bxc4 instead of Bc2 was absolutely crushing. After the queen sacrifice black had an advantage, but only after 31 d5? did the computer think Black had a winning position.

This is one of my favorite games.

  keypusher: Incidentally, compare the board after White's 10th and before White's 17 move.

1)Black's position is the same.
2)White has played two pawn moves.
