Mar-20-10  molinov: 39... Qb7 ruins the game for black. Qa7 or Qxf3 should hold.

  Richard Taylor: <Eisenheim: whats wrong with simply 19 Bxg4> I was puzzled by that but on Fritz there is:

19. ... Ng4 20. Bxg4 e5! 21. Bxc8 Raxc8 and the B on f4 is pinned and Black seems to get a better position.

  Eisenheim: <Richard Taylor> - thank you for working it out, sometimes these computers eye up things that look and feel differently to me. even after Fritz-txt, I would still judge white ahead a bit, but Fritz and chuck are probably right.

  Richard Taylor: It's probably only marginally better for Black - cheers.
