Jul-30-05  gambitfan: why not 15. fg ++ instead of this slow 15. Qh3 ??

  al wazir: <gambitfan: why not 15. fg ++> I see no checkmate. 15. fxg6+ Kg8 16. gxh7+ (or Qf7+) Kh8.

Furthermore, black could have continued the game with 18...Nxf5. If 19. Bxd8 then 19...Rxh7. If 19. Qxf5+ then 19...Bf6 20. Bxf6 Qc8. Where's the win?

Jan-31-06  Cyphelium: <al wazir> After 18.- ♘xf5 19. ♕xf5+ ♗f6 20. ♗xf6 ♕c8 21. ♕f3 black has to move the rook, but then d5 falls. White will then have four pawns for a mere exchange while black´s king is still out in the open. For example 21.- ♖g8 22. ♕xd5+ ♕e6 (22.- ♔f8 23. ♖f1) 23. ♕xb7 looks hopeless for black, as does 21.- ♖e8 22. ♕xd5+ ♔g6 23. ♖f1. Even if black somehow manages to avoid mate, the endgame is lost.

  al wazir: <Cyphelium:> I agree that black's ♔ is exposed and the endgame is bad for him (white's two king-side pawns look especially strong), but the fact is, black *can* reach an endgame. White doesn't have a mate or an overwhelming material advantage. I would have played on a few more moves.
