  wwall: Is 14.Kf1 better than 14.Ke2? Evans says it was a trap after 14.Kf1 Nfe5 15.Bxd7 Nxd7 16.Qb5 c6 17.Qxb7 Qh4 18.Rxd7 Bxc3 19.bxc3 Rab8 (19...Qxe4 looks good) 20.Qc7 Rb1+ (better seems 20...Qxe4, threatening 21...Rb1 mate and 21...Qxh1) 21.Kg2 Qxe4+ 22.f3 Qc2+ 23.Bf2 Rxh1 24.Kxh1 Qxf2, threatening 25.Qf1 mate. But instead of 15.Bxd7, perhaps 15.Rg1 and 16.Rg3 is OK for White.
