  notyetagm: Amazing to see the great defender Leko completely demolished like he is in this miniature (but it was rapid).

Yes, he certainly missed 17 e5!, which is <clearance> for the threatened 18 ♘e4!. This sequence is an excellent illustration of the idea that <to remove a knight defender, attack the knight and something else at the same time (double attack)>. The main line goes 17 e5! dxe5 18 ♘e4! after which White cannot simultaneously meet the threats both to his queen (19 ♘e4x♕f2) and the mating focal point h7 (19 ♘xf6+ and 20 ♕xh7#).

  Sastre: <justsojazz> White doesn't win material after 16.g5 Nh5.
