  Benzol: <ravel5184: <chessgames.com>, have you looked at the PGN for this game <Stepanov-Romanovsky> submitted by User: Benzol?>

Well <ravel> here it is.

May-28-09  centralfiles: is 22.cxd5 exd5+ 23.Kxd5 that bad that white resigns?! 23...Rxa3 is met with Qb2+
23...Be6+ Kd6 or 23...Bb7 is good but it doesnt seem to be over yet
Jul-09-09  schroedingers cat: <centralfiles> After 23... Be6+ 24. Kd6 Rd8+ if white takes the bishop he loses queen with Nd4+

if white takes the knight he loses queen with Rc8+

if White instead decides to play Kc7 after Rf7+ Kxc6 Rc8+ white loses the queen. (or with (after Kxc6) Bd7+ with Bf5+ to folllow)

So my personal opinion is that it's that bad, since affter black's done white will be a rook down.

(Btw. Amazing game)

Jul-29-09  mworld: so much going on in this one! I'm surprised no puzle has been created from it yet.
