Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-24-17  fisayo123: 25...Nd2! very powerful deflection making room for black's queen on the open h-file.

25...Nb2!! was objectively stronger with the idea of placing the black knight on e4 which is untouchable.

For instance, 25...Nb2!! 26. Nxb2 g4! 27. Nd3 [<or 27. Re1 Qh5 28. Re2 Ne4! 29. Kf1 Rf6> ] Qh5 28. Re1 Ne4 29. Re2 Qh2+ Kf1 Rf6

Emre Can could have saved himself after 25...Nd2 with 28. Rf2! Qh2+ 29. Kf1 Qxg3 30. Be7! exchanging the dangerous black knight and making way for f4 to close the position. Black is still better but white isn't getting mated.

Sensational game from Ray Robson!!
