Oct-06-07  Whitehat1963: Why not 21. Nd5+, forking king and queen? I'm guessing:

21. Nd5+ Kxg5 22. Nxc7 Nxc4 23. Qxh3. Now what?

  whiteshark: <Whitehat1963> There is a zwischenzug, <22...Rh8>, in your line which might cause some trouble: 23. Qxh3 Rxh3 24. Nxa8 Rg3 25. Kf2 Kf4 26.Be2 Nh4 27. Rg1

  Gejewe: <whiteshark> It is a long time ago but I think we came to the same conclusion, that 23..Nxd5 looks dangerous but in fact leads to a draw. And it was the zwischenzug, just as you indicate, that scared me away from Nd5+.. Very cheeky defence from Mr.Kappler and I noticed it just before walking into the ambush..

  GrahamClayton: I had a look at the position if Welling played 18. gxh3. My first choice for Black was 18...♔g7, attacking the Black rook and adding an extra defender to the weak g6 square. The obvious move for White would seem to be 19. ♖ef1, supporting the rook on f6 and adding more pressure to f7.

An interesting move for Black is 19...♘f5?!, cutting off the support for the Rook. A possible line is 20. exf5 ♔xf6, when White has the choice of two discovered checks 21. fxg6+ and 21. ♘e6+ - something which doesn't happen often in a game.

Unfortunately I can't see a forcing line for White after either check, so maybe Welling was correct to attack the weak point immediately with 18. ♖xg6+, rather than recapturing.
