Jan-11-10  shimmy: Video analysis by the winner:
Jan-11-10  mirzafuadi: Very nice queen sacrifice by white on move 16!
Jan-11-10  ounos: Spectacular!
Jan-11-10  ounos: but...most probably unsound :), there has to be some defense here. 17. ...Rxf6 and 18. Nd7 seem to hold, I doubt White can maintain the pressure for ever.

  zanshin: The Queen sac was not sound - I think any decent engine will show that. But it got the job done. As Williams says in the video, you sometimes need to play crazy moves OTB.

If we analyze the game with Rybka, Black gave the game away with <19...exd5>. Exchanging on f1 preserves the advantage.

Jan-14-10  ALwoodpusher: Here's another analysis of the game...
Mar-12-15  chicharitov: You've got to admire the sheer audacity to give up a queen for a mere bishop , i bet black's face was a picture.!
