Nov-14-18  saturn2: <Sydro Seems like black was winning for awhile> Seems he missed 20...b5.
By 20...f6 chased the white knight to the killer square c4.

  WannaBe: Game was played at Cork, was Casey caught with a 'doctored' bat??

Because if 23...Ra7 24. Nc8+ and black is "inevitably forked" anyway

Nov-14-18  dumbgai: Great example of positional domination outweighing material.
