  patzer2: White's 15. e6!, like a loose wrench in a jet engine, is a strong obstruction move. After 16. Bxe6+ Black is blockaded, leaving him unable to coordinate his pieces and stop the White attack.

  patzer2: The odd looking 20. Nd5! is a good example of using the Knight Fork to gain a positional advantage. If Black declines the offer, then White exchanges off the Knights and proceeds with the winning kingside attack (e.g. 19...Qd8 20. Nxf6 Rxf6 21. h4 ).

Which is why he lost so Faust. Nd5 was a devilish move.

  kevin86: Black's knight was a powerful defensive piece. Its defense was very strong. It took an unusual kind of fork to either loss this valuable defender or lose his queen.

With such bad choices,black was doomed to defeat.

Jun-14-07  Kleve: Excellent punning, all. <Phony Benoni>, you just killed it! (In a good way.)
Jun-14-07  Chessmensch: It is not well with his Seul.
Jun-14-07  orior: 22..h6 23.Rxh6+ Kg7 ..and?
Jun-14-07  Timetraveller: <orior> After 22...h6 23.Rxh6+ Kg7 there are a lot of ways to win, but 24. Qg1+ is quite quick.
