  MoonlitKnight: Shoot, I was rooting for black!
Oct-11-03  Alchemist: The pawn sacrifice imo is questionable, normally I only throw that out to get a file on the kingside, but (((( Bg5! )))) was brilliant. Excellent utilization of the minor peices.
May-10-08  JimmyVermeer: According to Polgar's book, Black resigned on the 14th move. The game might have continued:

14 Nf6+ Kh8 15 Bxh6 g6 16 Qh4 Bg4 17 Nxe8 Kh7 18 Bxf8+ Kg8 19 Qf6 Bxf2+ 20 Rxf2 Rxe8 21 Qg7#

  fredthebear: <JimmyVermeer> After 14.Nf6+ Kh8, most of us could not resist playing 15.NxQe8 for a decisive material advantage, although it does not lead to mate.

<14 Nf6+ Kh8 15 Bxh6 g6 16 Qh4 Bg4 17 Nxe8 Kh7 18 Bxf8+ Kg8 19 Qf6 Bxf2+ 20 Rxf2 Rxe8 21 Qg7#>

Here's another possible finish to the line you posted: 19.Qf6 e4 20.Qxf7+ Kh8 21.Qg8#

Are you still reading Polgar's Brick?!? It's like vitamins for a chess player...very healthy reading:-}
