  InspiredByMorphy: Does 21. ... Be6 win ? 22.Bd5 Kf8 23.Bxe6 fxe6 and if 24.Rxe6 Rxa2 creates a passed pawn on the a-file. Therefore white must play the defensive 24.Ra1 upon which black seems to have the better game.
May-08-05  Holden: <IBM> After 21. ... ♗e6 22.♗d5 ♔f8 23.♗xe6 fxe6 24.♖xe6 Then instead of ♖xa2, it seems black could simply ♖b1+ with mate to follow. Am I missing something?
