Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-01-06  Knight13: I don't see anything wrong with 16...fxg4. If 17. Nb5 then ...Kd7.

When White saw that Black's attack can't succeed, he counterattacked on the queenside. Because of Black's useless rooks on the wrong side of the line, he eventually resigned.

16...fxg4 gives up the e4 square and allows 17. Ne4 Qe7 18. Bxg4, with a good position for White.

Jan-25-15  vajeer: 15....h3 looks to be a good move for Black.
