  Honza Cervenka: 9...Qc5 was very unfortunate idea. 10...b5 would have been relatively better but after 11.cxb4 Nxb4 12.Be3 Qc7 13.Bxb5 (diagram) black's position is very bad too.

In final position 13.Nxd4 Qxd4 14.Be3 or 13...exd4 14.Ba3 Qc7 15.Nd6+ wins the Queen.

Jan-22-07  ianD: 15. Nd6+ does not win the Q becasuse the Q can recapture. 15...Qxd6. Black is seriously underdeveloped and his Queen is blocking his d7 pawn so the possition is probably lost. Will look at this later.
Jan-22-07  ianD: 14 Ba3 is a good suggestion (with th idea..Qc7 15.Nd6!! trapping the Q. However, after 14.Ba3 Black can simply play 14...Qh5. It is still "game over" but the Black Q is still on the board
Jan-22-07  Wolfgang01: And if in the final position the black queen prefers h5? 13. Nxd4 exd4
14. Ba3 Qh5
I guess the position will be lost too, but black is able, to survive some moves.
Jan-22-07  ounos: ianD, 15. Nd6+ does indeed win the Q, as you yourself note in the second message :-)
Jan-22-07  ianD: You missed 14..Qh5
Jan-23-07  ianD: Fritz Gives:

13. Nxd4 O-O
14. Nf3 b5
15 BxB5 Qc7
16 Ba3 Qd8
17 Ncxe4 d6
18 Ne4c6! Nxc6
19 Bxc6 Bg4
20 Bxa8 Bxf3
21 Qd2 Qd7
22 gxf3 ( 6.9)

It is still "game over" but the Black Q is still on the board> Right. 14...Qh5 after 13.Nxd4 exd4 14.Ba3 saves the Queen but the game remains utterly lost, for example 15.Nd6+ Kf8 16.Nxc8 etc.
Jan-23-07  ianD: I totall agree with you.

Black was correct to resign.
