Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-22-12  LawrenceBernstein: 21. Ng6 is an obvious but cute shot.

  hesyrett: By recapturing with the N (20. Bxe7 Nxe7) Black could avoid the 21. Ng6 shot, but then Drazen Marovich in his book on the Queen's Gambit says cryptically "...there is 21. Nxf7" with no further analysis. After 20. Bxe7 Nxe7 21. Nxf7 Rxf7 (not 21...Kxf7 22. Qxe6 mate!) 22. Qxe6 Qe8, what's best for White? Just trading into an endgame doesn't look good, but Black is threatening to evict the White Queen with 23...Nf8.
Jun-15-15  RookFile: These queen's gambit accepted lines are tough. If you think you can just blockade on d5 and call it a day with black, you usually get blown right off the board before more 40.

  perfidious: <hesyrett> In the variation you give with 20.Bxe7 Nxe7 21. Nxf7 Rxf7, 22.Bxe6 looks more promising, with ideas such as d5 in view.
