Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-18-07  AlfieNoakes: Wow, this is very complex chess! I play the KG as white and this is exhilarating.
Jul-01-11  ForeverYoung: In his book he claims after 12 ... Ne4 13 Bxe7 Qxe7 14 Qh6! wins. Anyone see a crushing move after 14 ... Qf6?

After 12...Ne4 13. Bxe7 Qxe7 14. Qh6 Qf6, White has 15. Rxg7+! Qxg7 16. Rg1. Although two rooks for queen is a roughly even trade, it's hard to defend Black's exposed and undefended kingside without losing further material - at least I haven't found a good defense yet.
Jul-02-11  ForeverYoung: Right you are. After 16 ... Qxg1+ 17 Nxg1 Nxc3 18 Nxf3 Ne4 (best. not 18 ... Na4 19 Bd3 f5 20 Qe6+) 19 Bd3! now after either Ndf6 or Nef6 20 Ng5 wins material.

Hmm, is there a ghost of a knight on d7 in your line? This looks like the position after 19.Bd3:
