Mar-16-06  Mating Net: Clear cut case of damned if you do, damned if you don't.

...35Nd2+ forks the King and Queen. If 36.Rxd2, ...36Qh1# because the Black Rook has the e file covered. 36.Kg1 and the Queen is lost.

Apr-18-06  who: 13.dxe5 seems to just win a pawn.
Apr-21-06  Mating Net: No!

13.dxe5 loses due to 13...exd5 14.Nxd5 Bb4! and Black wins the exchange. This is one of the key positions to look for as Black when White plays Re1. The ...Bb4 threat allows Black to safely play the all important 11...e4 which allows him to equalize.

Apr-21-06  who: oops. good point.

Dec-18-12  Everett: If <33.Bxd4 Qd5 winning>
Sep-23-13  apanadsky: fantastic! dangerous dutch
