  tpstar: Note 15 ... Qxe5?! 16. Bf4 Qxf5 17. Bd6 wins a piece. Then 20 Nxg7! was very nice (20 ... Kxg7 21. f6+) and Black should have resigned after 22. Qg5, since 22 ... Qf8 23. Qf6+ Rg7 24. Bh6 is decisive. Black's Bishops were conspicuously absent in this one.

tpstar-NN (GameKnot 8/23/05): 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nd4 4. Nxd4 exd4 5. 0-0 c6 6. Ba4 b5!? 7. Bb3 d5?! 8. ed cd 9. Qe2+ Be6 10. Qxb5+ Qd7 11. Qa6(!) Nf6?? 12. Ba4 Qxa4 13. Qxa4+ 1-0.
