Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-03-03  Lawrence: After 11.axb4 cxd1Q+ 12.Rxd1 Black does not fear Rd8+, takes the pawn 12.....Nxb4 and is a full piece up. If 13.Rd8+ simply Ke7 and Bob's your uncle.
Nov-09-04  morphy234: 10...cxb2+ is best, because black gets a rook and queen for a bishop.
Nov-09-04  Saruman: <morphy234>10.-cxb2+? 11.axb4 (Qd2?? bxa1R#)-bxa1 12.Qxa1 and white gets counterplay.
Aug-14-08  Sololoy: morphy234: 10...cxb2+ is best, because black gets a rook and queen for a bishop.

After 10...cxb2+ it follows
11 a3xB bxR=Q and
12 QxQ

  JonathanJ: well, that's exactly what saruman said 4 years earlier.
Aug-14-11  sfm: I'd also like to point out that what morphy234 said was wrong, as 10.-,cxb2+ is followed by 11.axb4,bxa1=Q
12 QxQ
and White has counterplay.
