Mar-08-09  just a kid: 19.Bxf5 looks sorta bad because he gives up the two bishops.I would play something ornery like 19.g4!?
Jul-22-09  Knight13: 30. Bc3 Nxe5. White loses a pawn no matter what.

  wwall: After 30.Bc3 Nxe5 (Black is threatening 31...Nf3+ forking queen and king), instead of 31.Re3?, White can play 31.Qc3 (Black's queen and knight are threatened). Now if 31...Nf3+ 32.Qxf3 Bxf3 33.Bxb6 axb6 34.Rxe6 b5 35.Rb6 g5 36.Nd3 Be2 37.Nc5 and White should win a pawn.
