  patzer2: Black's 9...Be6 = was an attempt to improve on Beliavsky vs J Borisek, 2005. However, it is White who does a better job of getting the best of Black's improvement in this rare Queen's Gambit Accepted line.

The defensive and attacking move 13. Nb3!= turns out to be both brilliant and amusing. Perhaps Black could have drawn with the Fritz 8 line 14... Nxe5! 15. Be4 O-O-O 16. Bf4 Nxc4 17. Ne7+ Bxe7 18. Bb7+ Kd7 19. Bc6+ Kc8 20. Bb7+ Kd7 21. Bc6+ Kc8 22. Bb7+ = with a draw by perpetual (0.00 @ 14 depth).

Failing to see this equalizing possibility, Black appears to realize too late after losing the exchange that he can't trap the Black Knight on a8 without losing too much material. For example 16...Be7 17. cxb5! Nxf2 (17...Nc3 18. Bd2 ) 18. Kxf2 Rxa8 19. Bf4 leaves White up the exchange with decisive advantage.
