Oct-20-04  InspiredByMorphy: Perhaps 37. ...Kh6 would have been better.
Oct-20-04  acirce: <IBM> It doesn't matter what Black plays in that position. 37..Kh6 leads to (for example) 38.Re7 Rb6 39.Bh4! Ra6 40.Ng5! winning piece because taking the knight leads to mate.. So 39..g5 is a must and then 40.Bxg5+ wins as well
Oct-20-04  InspiredByMorphy: <acirce> Thanks.
Feb-01-12  Knight13: Instead of 23...Nd8, go for 23...Qd8, opening the option of ...Rb8 ...b5 (with preparation of ...Na7 if needed) if necessary, or ...Qf8. Not to mention the control of the h4 square. Black's knight doesn't belong on f7.
Feb-02-12  thomastonk: <Knight13> I think 23.. Na7 with the threat Nb5 is best. White has to care about the queen side immediately.
Feb-02-12  Knight13: <thomastonk> I agree. Thanks for pointing it out!
