  Honza Cervenka: 23...Rh8 was a blunder. Also 23...Qxd4 24.Bxd4 Bxg2 25.Bxf6 Re8 26.Kf2 is hopeless for black. Black should have played 23...Ke8.
Sep-27-05  Maroczy: This looks like a Goring gambit off of a Scotch.

  GrahamClayton: 20...♗b7 21. ♘xf6+ ♗xf6 22. ♕xf6 ♕xe4 looks OK for Black.
Feb-10-12  King Death: This was probably Smejkal in his typical time trouble. The way he played was fine and maybe a better choice over the board than 20...Bb7 when White can try 21.Bg5 fg 22.f6 although 22...Qe4+ 23.Qe4 Be4 24.Ng5 Bg2 25.fe Ke7 or 22...Bf8 23.f7+ Kd7 24.Nf6+ Ke6 25.Nd5 Qc5 26.Qf6+ Kd7 27.Qf5+ Kc6 look good for Black since in the second variation there's no time to play 28.Qg5.
