Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-21-05  dickweed: I guess black resigns since the queen can't avoid being threatened by the knight the next move, allowing Rxg7 to follow

  fredthebear: Agreed. This is a unique queen trap threat along the 6th rank. If 21...Qh6/Qd6 22.Nf5 forks her and g7. If 21...Qf6 22.Nh5 forks both. The Black queen does escape, but the g-pawn falls leaving Black with three isolated pawns.
Mar-28-18  sudoplatov: Keres, by playing 5.Nf3 takes an even more cavalier approach to the QGA than Marshall was wont to do.
