Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-19-08  stuart.winter: Please can someone explain why black resigns at this juncture?
Oct-24-09  tommer: I think black has no more effective checks, and is down a piece even after knight take a1.
Jun-19-12  James D Flynn: 14....Qd1+ 15.Kg2 Qg4+ Obviously White must interpose or play Kh1 to avoid a perpetual. If 16.Qg2 Qxg2 17.Rxg2 Nxa1 and pieces are even but Black is 2 pawns up. How White will win the N on a1 is unclear given Black can defend it with Nd4. Even if he does succeed in winning a piece he will probably need to do so with a move of is b2 pawn to b3 at which point Nxb3 will give Black 3 pawns for a piece. If 16. Bg2 Gd1+ 17.Qe1 Qxe1#. If 16.Kh1 Qd4 17.Qxd4 exd4 18.d3 c6 18.Bc4 b5 19.Bf7+ Kf8 20.b3 b4 21.Bb2 Nxb3 22.axb3 g6 and Black has 3 pawns for his piecea nd active piece play with Bb7 and Rc8. The resignation is clearly premature.

I think Black better play 9.-,NxR
After that Black is (momentarily) only a piece down for two pawns, and - Bc4 is hanging, and if Black is allowed to take it, his queen neatly covers f7 (e.h. 10.KxN,QxB 11.Qh5,g6 12.NxP,Qf7 or 12.Qxh7 and Black can take a perpetual if nothing better.) - The knight on h1 threatens to escape with nice tempos Nh1-f2-h3+(-f4). (e.g.10.Nf7,Nf2) - -,d7-d5 may come in strongly, with Black's queen bishop entering the play. After a move like 13.-,Nxc2 it is over.
