Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-04  pilot: 27. Qf5 is also a quick win.
Oct-31-04  sneaky pete: Black can survive after 14... Qf5 15.Bxf7+ Kf8 16.Bxh5 Qxh5 17.Bxf4 Kg7 etc.

  Big Pawn: 19...Kf7 allows black to get his rook out of the corner.

20. 0-0 Re8
21. Bd6 Kg8

It looks like black is just winning there.

Also, 15...Qxf7 seems to be okay too with three pieces for the queen and black looks at least even, maybe a little better.

Feb-15-17  sneaky pete: After 19... Kf7 20.0-0 Re8 white should play 21.Bh6+ ..

Now if 21... Kg8 22.Qe7 .. and mate seems to be unavoidable. 21... Bf5 may be better, but after 22.Qc4+ Kg6 23.Bg5 .. or 22... Re6 23.Bg5 .. the attack continues.

  Big Pawn: That's an excellent variation, <sneaky>. I fired up the engine and checked it out, and it's good. Actually, black was quite busted going all the way back to 14...Qe7 as you noted above.

Unbelievable complications if you play through the variations throughout with the computer. For example, instead of 17. de, white can get an even greater advantage with 17. 0-0!

I used Stockfish 8 and played through the subsequent variations and gradually came to see why it was so winning.
