Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-05-05  patzer2: Black makes a mistake with 17...Rbc8?, allowing White to play a decisive trapped piece combination starting with 18. Nd4!

White plays a pretty piece of tactical defense after Black's attempt to complicate with 18...Ng4!?, using the threat of a decisive Knight Fork to win the exchange after 23. Qxc6! for a decisive advantage.

Jun-05-05  patzer2: In particular, 19. Qf4! is an impressive defensive and attacking move combined, allowing Black a tricky pawn fork for which White has a decisive counter.
Jul-17-15  Rookiepawn: Wouldn't 16... Bb7 make more sense? Black's LSB would accomplish much more there than in a6, starting with forcing White's one to exchange or retreat.
Jul-17-15  Nerwal: 16... ♗b7 17. ♖d7.
