  wwall: But was 17.Bxe6 the best move? Perhaps just 17.Qxe3 for a safer move.

After 17.Bxe6, instead of 17...Bd4, perhaps Black is better off after 17...Qe7, winning the exchange. If 18.Nd5, then 18...Ne5. If 18.Bd4, then 18...Nd4 and 19...Nxc2.

The losing move seems to be 20...Qb6? and no longer preventing the threat of Qf8+ and Qxg7 after Rxd4. Perhaps 20...Qd6, protecting the f8 square, or 20...Kc7 and 21...Rd7.

Sep-04-19  Straclonoor: <perhaps Black is better off after 17...Qe7, winning the exchange.> Yes of course
