Aug-10-07  vonKrolock: Amazing how white's situation evolutes to an early débâcle... <11...♘xe4> But now it seems that 12.♗xa8 could be a little more resilient, as after 12...♕h4+ 13.g3 ♘xg3 14.hxg3 (seems for me in moment better than 14.♖g1!? etc) 14...♕xh1+ 15.♔d2 ♕g2+ 16.♕e2 (best) white seems to be avoiding the imediate mating attack - with 16...♕xe2+ 17.♔xe2 ♗a6+ black win back the piece , but material would be balanced, as the ♙ at 'd5' is en prise in the end of the scramble
