Jan-15-06  blingice: Did Speyer not see that he could get a free ♕? Whatever line he saw, it didn't help...

  Sneaky: There are no free queens here. 24...Qxd5 25.Ne7+ and 26.Nxd5

I think Black's mistake might have been 25...Nf6. Instead of that, I think he should try to save that bishop immediately with 25...Be5 (threatening Bxh2+ Kh1 Qh6)--maybe Black can hold then, but it's hard work with that mass of pawns White's got.

Jan-15-06  blingice: Will it lead to a better line for Speyer or is he already done?
Premium Chessgames Member
  profK: White gains several tempi by biffing the black queen about. The black queen didn't even take the b pawn which was the original reason for bringing it out!!!

  Everett: Looks like a Larsen or Nimzo game.
