Apr-20-10  Everett: What does white play after 17..gxh4?

I don't see how 18.Qxh6 f5 works. If 19.Nf6+ Kf7 and 19.Ng5 Qg7.

No bluff, as Rybka 3 confirms.

After 18 Qxh6 f5 19 Qg6+

Now, 19...Kh8 20 Nf6 Bg8 21 Bd5 (or 21 b5 first)

and if 19...Kf8 20 Ng5 threatens Nh7+

Interesting how White delays moving the knight depending which direction the King flees.

Apr-21-10  Everett: Thanks <Tamar>. And now I see if 19..Qg7 then 20.Nf6+ Kf8 <Kh8 21.Qh5+> 21.... Okay, I still don't see it.

  Gilmoy: <<18.Qxh6 f5 19.Qg6+> Qg7> simply 20.Qxg7+ Kxg7 21.Nxd6 a pawn up, plus Black has <three en prise> (Re8, b7, h4), and b5 looms.

21..Re7 22.Nxb7 anyways, with <mutual threat> to Nc6.

Funny: the h4-pawn is so ugly that neither side wants to touch it. White can't hold gxh4 against Rh8, and Black doesn't want hxg3 fxg3 adding pressure to f5. This suggests that both sides really want to play f4 first. Hence: 21..Rf8 22.f4! and Black's apples are rotting.

Apr-22-10  Everett: <Gilmoy> Thank you very much!
