Feb-22-08  Knight13: 16. Ncxb5!! (I didn't see that)

56...c5 57. Rf3 Bc1 58. gxf5 gxf5 59. Rxf5 and after that I think it's a draw. Other moves by White also draws (just listening to my intuition).

  Honza Cervenka: I guess that 16.Ncxb5 is an error in the gamescore. Correct move order must be 16.Ndxb4 with idea 16...axb5 17.Bb6.

Renette - H.E. Bird, p. 312:

<The tournament book gives 16. Ncxb5, but this is probably a misprint as 16...axb5 wins obviously...>
