Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-11-06  mack: A useful study for those looking for different systems as black. The knight steals the show, darting back and forth all over the place.
Oct-14-07  oxxo: Why not 24... Qxe2?
Oct-15-07  oxxo: Ooops. I'd missed 25.Rxf2 and thought Qxe2 won a bishop. Nevertheless Fritz also likes 24.. Qxe2 here and reckons 24.. Bd4 gives white a slight edge.
Jun-11-08  popescuag: how does black win after 40...Kh2?

  Gilmoy: Black just trades down: 40.Kh2 Bxe3 41.Qxe3 Qxd6+ and two pawns up.

The 22..Bd4+ theme looks like a Benoni trap. Black invited White to push (too) hard on f, then counterpunched on e/f. That opened up three lines: e, f, and the long diagonal. White balanced pressure on two of them, but Black owned the third, and his Bd4 dominated White's K-side.
