Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-05-05  thesonicvision: 20...Nb4 and...white is ready to sac the exchange and pick up the c-pawn?

if the queen retreats, then the
threat of Nxd3 takes some more
material away from white while
endangering the knight on e2.

Oct-05-05  aw1988: Nb4 Qc3 followed by Rxb4, yes, looks good.
Nov-23-07  PADutchImprover: I particularly enjoyed White's moves 20-23, setting up the queen pin. Plus the endgame demonstrates the usefulness of a kingside pawnstorm in a "stand-off" situation in which I would have been attempted to use pieces alone (given I was up queen to rook).
Nov-23-07  Shams: 20...Nb4 21.Rxb4 Bxb4 and 22.Qxc7?? Rc7 but simply 22.Nf4 threatening Nd5 and Nf6 looks very strong

  Honza Cervenka: 22...Rd7 was a blunder. After 22...Nd6 black is fine.
