  ray keene: blacks 17 was the error-it was time to give back some material
Nov-09-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Do you mean the 18th move? It is there where you put the question mark in the pgn.

I also don't get the point of 23...Qd6. Why not 23...Kd6?

  ray keene: on 17 black cd have castled and given back one pawn--18 hxg5 led to tactical disaster-black had not foreseen that white cd keep blasting thru on the e-file with sacrifices.

  ray keene: yes ---kd6 is a better defence tho black is being pushed around quite a bit.
Apr-18-06  TenFeetTall: After 16 Bf5, it looks as if Black
could simply repel both bishops,followed by developing. Perhaps 16...g6 and 17...Bg7, or 16...g6 and ...f6, etc. 16...g6 is actually strong enough that it virtually reduces White to some sort of foolishness with Nf4 (which is why
...f6 could be thrown in as well, almost at any point - enabling ...Rd8) Some such was the correct defence to
consolidating what is after all a two
pawn advantage.

  ray keene: we were all trying to play like mikhail tal then-so absolute soundness of the attacks was not guaranteed!
