Apoline48: Why not 21... e3 pinning the Q and attacking white's B ?
   Aug-06-12 J Valencia vs J S Morgado, 1969
Apoline48: After black's 9th move, the only square for white's queen is 10 e4 and white is lost.

Apoline48: It seems to me that on 8 Nxf7 is better before taking on d4!
   Jul-09-12 Korchnoi vs T Gut, 1988
Apoline48: I must be missing something but for me 28 Qf7+ is mat in 2 !
   Apr-25-12 Tal vs Benko, 1964 (replies)
Apoline48: Since there is no forced mate and the N is going to be taken after 20 RxR , it seems to me that white could first get an extra pawn by 20 Nxf7 unless I miss something !?

Apoline48: It's funny; this problem ends up where it started with black's Ba2 leading to an attack on the Q after a discoved check . That was black's threat after it 16th move too!

Apoline48: Just want to point out that even if black position is a lost one, it's not yet a forced mate with 7...Be6 instead of comiting suicide with BxQ . Even a bad player can ask himself why his oponent leaves his Queen en prise ! The real question is how to go on playing after this ...
