21. Bc2 [21. e6 a5 22. ef+ Kh8 23. Qe4 ] Rd8? [21 ... c5 22. a3 Ba5 23. Kg2 ] 22. Kg2 [22. Rxd8+ Qxd8 23. Qe4 Qd5 24. Qxh7+ Kf8 ] Qe6? [22 ... c5 ] 23. Qe4 Qc6 24. Qxc6 Nxc6 25. Be4 1-0.

I rarely run g/10 through Fritz 7 (partly because there are so many improvements lol) but this one was too interesting. On 5. Qe2 d6 note 6. d4!? commits White to a Pawn sacrifice (6 ... ed 7. c3) due to 6 ... ed 7. Nxd4?? b5 8. Bb3 c5 & 9 ... c4. Instead of 14. e5 or 14. Nh4!? White might try 14. d5 (compare Yates vs E G Sergeant, 1930). The Queen for 3 pieces line [15 ... Bd3!? 16. exf6] is fascinating, then Black should have attacked the Pe5 with 18 ... Qe7. The point behind 21. e6! is 21 ... fe 22. Qe4 with the double threat 23. Bxe6+ & 23. Qxb4. In the end Fritz only gives as Black loses the exchange.

  wwall: If 27...gxf5??, then 28.exf5 Ng7 (or anywhere else) 29.Nf6+ and 30.Qxb7, winning the Queen
Oct-01-18  graphvariety: @wwall: 27... gxf5 is not a blunder. Spielmann gives 28. exf5 Bc6 (28.... Nd8 29. Qh5 is worse), after which 29. fxe6 fxe6 30. Nf6+ Nxf6 31. Qxf6 d5 32. Be2 and "White's prospects are favorable, but not entirely clear-cut."
