Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-27-04  DocNZ: Timman annotates this educational game in his book "Power Chess with Pieces". He comments that 17..h6 "A useful little move in virtually all respects". After 20..Qe6 Timman writes "Here the purpose of Blacks 17th move is revealed:the edge has been taken off any white knight sortie to g5". After 21 h3 Timman continues "The start of a curious transaction, but there is no good plan to be found". But what about
21. Ng5 (so much for g5) hxg5 22. Bxe4 Nxe4 23. Qxe4. Here the poition is opened, but may favour the bishop, black doesnt really have any useful points for his knight, and black may struggle to control the b file and b7 with so many weak points on the king side (e5, g5 and the h file). Any thoughts??

But perhaps there is an alternative: 22. .. Nd4 instead of Nxe4. It looks weird, but 23. Bxa8 Nxe2+ seems to be working for black. Also 23. Bxd4 Nxe4 followed by Qf5 may give black some chances? Not sure about this at all though.
