Jan-11-05  suenteus po 147: I'm assuming that 20...Qxe5 would be bad, and that's why Alburt resigned? Does it involve 21.Qa4+?
Jan-11-05  Cyphelium: <suenteuspo147> Yes. 20.- Qxe5 21. Qa4+ Ke7 22. Qd7+ Kf6 23. Qxf7+ Kg5 24. Nf3+ wins the queen.
Jan-11-05  suenteus po 147: <Cyphelium> Yes, you're right. I finally caught it about an hour after posting, having played around with the position. Thanks for the confirming analysis.
Aug-30-10  Everett: A complete disaster for black, who neglected his development and got duly punished by 16.e5
