Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-04-04  nikolaas: Alexander Nikitin gives 13....Qxd4 which would be bad for white. He says that 14.cxd4 Rxh5 would be disastrous. But why doesn't he consider 13....Qxd4 14.Qxf7+?
Dec-16-04  siggemannen: I think after 14. Qxf7 Kxf7 15. cxd4 Nxd4 black's threat is both to take the knight and play Nc2+ winning the rook, so white still have to give away the knight and after that black will have very strong passed pawns on the queenside
Feb-11-11  falso contacto: Strange that 13....Qxd4 had been played 10 years earlier already.
Jul-26-17  bla bla: why not 13.nf6 and 14.qxh8?
Jul-26-17  Nerwal: <why not 13.nf6 and 14.qxh8?>

It loses by force after 13. ♘f6+ gxf6 14. ♕xh8 ♘xd4!. But even after the natural 14... 0-0-0 which has been played several times White's position is pretty bad.
