Dec-20-04  Knezh: Qb3 looks dubious.. WHy not 8. d4?
Dec-20-04  george IV: What if 18.♕g8? I can see nothing better than a perpetual check then.

Dec-20-04  JohnBoy: Why settle for giving black a perp when 18.f3 makes black have to work harder for the draw. The best I can see for black after this is 18...Bd6 19.Rf2 Qc1+ 20.Kg2 Bc5, when black may be able to find a perp
