  wwall: Safer is 13...Qc7.

Perhaps 14...Be6.

Perhaps 18...b5 is better.

Perhaps 19...Bd4 is best.

After 20.Rd7, if 20...Rf8, then 21.Qb3.

Jun-08-06  outplayer: How about Black moves from 8 to 11. It seems that there is another way to equality.
Jun-08-06  hitman84: What a beautiful Miniature with lots of ideas..

In the final position if 20..Rf8 21.f4 followed by e5 cutting the support to the trapped B on b2.

18.Nb1! wins the game.What a move.

This is a classic example of not thinking deep enough. The position looks equal until move 17 then Nb1 and 1-0.

An important rule is when analysing a series of exchanges go deep enough so that you dont miss an unexpected move.

Jun-08-06  RookFile: I think Santasiere should have finished what he started and played 12.... Bxe2.
Jul-09-13  jerseybob: hitman: After 20..Rf8 21.f4,Bd4+ 22.Kh1,Qc5 seems to save the piece, but 23.Qb3 keeps the edge.
