Jun-17-05  Knight13: 13. Nc3 is slightly better, but still, White is lost after 13... Qxb2 14. Rc1 Qxg2 or 14. Ne2 Qb4+.
Jun-17-05  mymt: 13.Nc3 Qxb2 14.Nge2
Jun-18-05  Knight13: <mymt> Yes. I overlooked the 14. Nge2. Thanks for telling.
Jun-18-05  mymt: sac on h7? 8.Nf3 <8.Nce2> c5 9.h4 Nc6 10.Bxh7+ Kxh7 11.Ng5+ Kg8 [...Kg6 12.Qd3+] 12.Qh5 etc gives good OTB chances for club players [ but against Blackburn ? ]

  profK: 13.Nc3 looks a lot better, the pawn b pawn is a small price, the Q awn is immune.
