May-12-05  ArturoRivera: ok, Bg4 was a mistake
May-12-05  ArturoRivera: I love this game, i have played this game at least 10 times as white, black never realize that Bg4 is completely incorrect until is too late, this game is very cool, very useful.

  WannaBe: <ArturoRiviera> What is the continuation here? I really don't see it.
May-12-05  soberknight: White is up a piece. Black played 17...c6 hoping to trap the white bishop, but White played 18 d5!, so now if 18...Qa7 19 Bxc6 wins.
May-12-05  ArturoRivera: white is a whole piece up, black can not do anything about it, and black's pawn structure is a disgrace, why to continue tragedy?, i love this kind of games Bg4??, you can not do it, i am white, and i am the only one who can pin a knight here!, dont expect initiative so early in the game!!, if not, this is the pun!

  wwall: Looks like 11...Qd7 loses a piece. Perhaps 11...Nxd4 12.Bxa8 Qxa8, threatening 13...Nxe4.

The only trick left is, instead of 14...Rg8, try 14...Bxf3. White gets mated if he takes the bishop. 15.gxf3 Rg8+ 16.Kh1 Qh3 (threatening 17...Qxf3 mate) and Black will soon mate.
