  Eggman: If you mean on move 25 (in the future it would be good to specify), it would cost White a piece: 25.Bxb7 Qxb7+ 26.f3 exf5, though White would obviously still be winning.
Nov-14-03  BeautyInChess: I assume you mean 16) ... fxg6. I think the reason is after 16) ... fxg6 17)Qh6 threatening Qg7 check threatening mate. There may be no way out for black here though I haven't calculated it out.
Nov-14-03  matt1994: It was move 16
Nov-14-03  matt1994: f7 to g6 and queen to g5 is trouble for black
