Nov-08-08  jerseybob: What a wipeout by Kashdan, at that time one of the world's best.

  ChessCoachClark: Interesting and consecutive pair of tactics-- Clearance tactic with 15. Bxe5, then Trapping with 16. g5 against the Black Knight.
May-07-15  JimNorCal: 16. g5 came as a complete shock to me.
It takes a second to realize that the knight has no squares ...

  tpstar: White to Play and Win after 14 ... fxe6.

  sfm: Stockfish suggests 15.Kb1, not 15.Lxe5, as the best move. Surprise!
