  Mating Net: While I really like how White opts for the King hunt instead of recapturing the Knight on a1, I just can't believe it would have succeeded if Black plays the logical 15...Nf6 instead of the dud 15...Bg6. I love a good King hunt, but I think the Knight recapture or 15.Bxa7 allows White to maintain a solid edge. This is a common dilemma, go for the throat or the material?

  louispaulsen88888888: You are right. 15...Nf6 is much better.If this Robert Breiger is the one who wrote Imagination in the Endgame; perhaps it was just more in his nature to go for the king hunt. Even after 15...Nf6; White is no worse than even.
