  mahamis: A subtle N sac re: 17.Nd5. If black captures the N 17...gxf5, white captures the R 18. Rxc8, w/c forces black to recapture 18...Qxc8 and thus white captures the B 19.Nxe7+ and the end for black...or white captures the whole R if black did not capture on his 18th move. What a neat sac!!!!

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Black’s 12th through 16th moves look plausible at first sight, but white’s 16th and especially 17th moves show that black’s plan of challenging the center was entirely mistaken.

  ChessHigherCat: Black's best try was 17...Nc6 but 18.Rxc6 Rxc6 19.Ndxe7+ Kh8 20.Nxc6 bxc6 21.Nxd6 and ay chihuaha
