Jul-28-07  Yuri Y: 10. Nxe5 is a nice Queen sacrifice but if Black doesn't accept and answers 10. ... Nxe5 Does White still win?
Jul-28-07  Phony Benoni: <Yuri Y> Actually, 10.Nxe5 isn't that bad; after 10...Nxe5 11.f3 White regains the piece. True, Black can regain his pawn by taking on f3 while compromising White's kingside a bit, but Black is hardly set up to take advantage of that.

It looks like White didn't have a significantly better move, so he might as try for a trap with a huge upside. Besides, if Black is the type of player who will play 10...Bxd1 in that position, it probably didn't matter anyway.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: White could have won a pawn with 8.dxe5 (if 8...dxe5 9.Qxd8+ followed by either 10.Nxe5 or 10.Bxf7, and if 8...Nxe5?? 9.Nxe5 dxe5 10.Bxf7+).

Of course, given how the actual game went, that would probably have been a slower win :)

  fearlessone: On move 8. de5 de5 Bf7+ Kxf7 Qxd8 white wins the queen. Or de5 Nxe5 Nxe5 de5 Bxf7+ kxf7 and qxd8 winning the queen again.

  fearlessone: My comment is half wrong sorry! On de5 de5 Bxf7 Kxf7 qxd8 Nxd8!! the N on c6 protect the queen. I missed N on c6 in first one but in second one on de5 Nxe5 Nxe5 de5 Bxf7+ Kxf7 Qxd8 really does win queen because of no more Nc6 to protect it.
