Black has some good moves here, but The Best is not easy to find.

Jun-11-17  ChessHigherCat: <Phony Benoni> Better than the fork Nd5?

  Phony Benoni: <ChessHigherCat> ...Nd5 is fine, but there is an even stronger move which it takes some thought to appreciate.
Jun-12-17  ChessHigherCat: Better than 22...Rb6 23. Nf7+ Kb8 24. Nxd8 Nh3?

  Phony Benoni: well, in the second place, after 22...Rh6 23.Nf7+ Kg8 24.Nxd8, Black just plays 24...Qxh2#.

But in the first place, after 22...Rh6 23.Nf7+ Kg8, White just plays 24.Nxh6+, killing the threat.

Black wants to play ...Rh6; the question is how best to prepare it?

Jun-12-17  ChessHigherCat: Sorry, I meant Rg6, not h6, which is obviously bad because of the fork, but the bishop does neutralize the threat temporarily. That said, the game line Kg8 prevents the fork and allows Rh6. Que demande le peuple?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: Yes, ...Kg8 is the best move. It doesn't look like much, but when you study the position carefully it turns out White has to give up all sorts of material to stop mate.

Really an extraordinary idea.

Jun-13-17  ChessHigherCat: <PB> I'm going to denounce you to The Hague for torture. I thought you meant I had to find a better move, not a "Schlechter one", so I was going into all these convoluted variants that didn't work.
Jun-13-17  ChessHigherCat: The blue helmets should be appearing at your door anytime now :-)
