Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-08  frank124c: Double attack. White's Knight is, of course, threatening to capture Black's Q. If 20. ... Nxe4 21. Bxe4 threatening 22. Bxc6 or Qxh7 #.
Jun-05-09  ozmikey: Black in this game is not Thomas Berger, but Bela Berger. Must stick up for my fellow Aussies, even when they get crushed in 20 moves!
Jan-08-10  Everett: Even after 20..Nxe4 21.Bxe4 g6 22.Bxc6 Qxc6 White has 23.d5! winning more material.
Jun-29-12  e4 resigns: <Even after 20..Nxe4 21.Bxe4 g6 22.Bxc6 Qxc6 White has 23.d5! winning more material.>

Aha! The invisible bishop!

Apr-13-14  zydeco: 15.....a6 and 16.....b5 are way too slow (and optimistic). Black doesn't think there's any danger. He probably has to play .....h6 between move 15 and 17. He was probably counting on 18.Nxd5 Bxd5 19.Bxf6 Rxc2 holding the balance, and missed the idea behind 18.Nxc6.
