  Mating Net: 18.Bxe5? looks to win a pawn for White because the full exchange of minor pieces on e5 leaves each side with one minor piece each. However, White's failure to consider all of Black's responses to the capture on e5 cost him the game. 18...Rfd8! is a super sharp intermezzo that ultimately wins at least two pieces. White can't play 21.Nxe5? because the stallion is pinned to the d8 Rook.
Jun-03-14  DeathByPawns1: How about 21. Rd5.
21. Rd5 Nxf3+
22. Bxf3 Qxf3
23. Rxf5 Qe4

Black is up a piece, but White has a pawn and some counter-play as compensation. If 21. Rd5 - is that the right continuation? Or did I miss something here?

Jun-04-14  ssouvey: um Rd5 looks awesome until black plays c6 lol
