Jun-23-05  Knight13: 12. Qe2?? This is really bad. 12... Rxa3!! is quite unexpected and decisive. 12. Bc4 is the best move, I think.

This game is great.

but black plays in original style and annihilates him! It brings to mind Huebner vs Kasparov, 1985 in the knight manoeuvres.

  sea7kenp: I just took a second look: 18 ... Qd4+ is Mate in One! After 18 ... Ba6, 19 Bb2 keeps the Game going by protecting the d4 square. (Of course, perhaps not for long after 19 ... Qxd2).
