Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-20-06  patzer2: Although Fritz 8's suggestion 15...Qg4 is probably slightly better, I thought Black's defensive combination with 15...Nf3!? = was an interesting way to equalize. Note that if White insists on keeping Queens on the board with 16. Bxc6+? bxc6 17. gxf3 Qxf3+ 18. kg1 0-0 then Black gets a positionally won game.
