Nov-29-05  The Saragossa Man: I do not understand why white does not play 16. Nxh4 to win the exchange. Can someone please shed some light on this?
Nov-29-05  The Saragossa Man: <continuing...>
My analysis is because of Qxh4, with black's plan of castling queenside and doubling up for mate on the h-file, which would be hard to deal with for white. Here's what I have:
16. Nxh4 Qxh4
17. g3 Qh3
18. Qf4 0-0-0
19. Qh4 which forces a trade of queens (still not bad at all for white). How do you guys feel?
Nov-29-05  aw1988: I believe your reason is correct.
Nov-29-05  The Saragossa Man: Also I would like to add that if on move 17, black moves the Queen to somewhere else on the h-file, like h5 or h7, that white could either play 18. Be2 to attack her or 18. e5 with discovered attack, in order to make her move and end the h-file attack. I still think taking the rook would win, but I suppose it doesn't matter because white ended up winning the game anyway.

  tpstar: <The Saragossa Man> After 16. Nxh4 Qxh4 17. g3? Qxg3+ 18. Kh1 Qh3+ 19. Kg1 0-0-0 and White is dead.

Note this is postal chess, so surely both sides looked long and hard at 15 ... Bd7!? then White declined the sacrifice with 16. g3.

Nov-30-05  The Saragossa Man: <tpstar> Thanks for setting me straight on that. What an oversight by me, missing the pin of the f-pawn.
Feb-25-09  WhiteRook48: "I won't take the c5 pawn!" Odd Lie lied.
