Oct-29-05  KingG: 17. ...Nf8? [17. ...Nf5 was better, with idea of Ne6] 18.Nb5! now we see one of the reasons it was better to keep the knight on d7, 18. ...cxb5?? 19.Bc5! and the queen is trapped. Had the knight remained on d7 Black could have played 18. ...Nxe5 19.Bxe5 Bxe5 20.Nxe5 Qxe5

25. ...b6? a mistake, losing the knight, but the position was pretty bad anyway. In fact most of Black's problems come from not moving the knight on h5 when he had the chance. It is difficult to find anything better eg. 25. ...g5 26.Rg4 Nf4 27.h4 Nd5 28.hxg5 hxg5 29.Nxg5
