  KingG: <Eric Schiller> In your notes at the end of the game, you give two different 17th moves. I'm not sure what this means, but one of them seems to be much better than the other. In one of the line you exchange queens, and then assess the position as unclear. But isn't it 17.exd5 clearly better?

For example:

17...0-0 seems to be losing.

17...00? 18.Bd3! g6 19.Rdf1 Bh6 20.Nf5! gxf5 21.Qxf5 f6 22.Qh5 since the bishop can't safely be saved and White retains a very strong attack. eg 22...Bg5 23.Rhg1 Qe7 24.Bxh7+! Qxe7 25.Rxg5+ Kh8 26.Rf4! and Black is completely busted, there are too many threats.

17...Bf6(making 18.exf7+ followed by 19.Re1+ less effective due to 19...Be5) doesn't seems great either. After 18.Rg1! Black's king will be stuck in the centre for a while and Black could have some real problems on the light squares.

  Eric Schiller: <KingG> Yes, 18.Bd3! improves on a known game and White should win.
May-30-12  screwdriver: Well, 16.Qxf7+ Kd8 17.e7+ Bxe7 18.Ne6#

Yep, that's tough to get out of.
