Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-29-06  chessacademy: isn't 24. Bd4? losing
isn't moving Rb1 better?
Mar-29-06  Jonber: White was already worse but with 24.Bd4 her position goes from bad to losing. Rb1, as you point out, or Ra1 was necessary.

I don't particularly like 11.Ng5. It's not bad in itself, but it seems to me the natural flow of play in that variation leads to an ending where Black is better. I would have gone with 11.Bxe6 instead. 11.Bxe6 Nxe6 12.cxd4 Ncxd4 and White can choose between 13.a4, 13.Nb3 and 13.Ne4 and an OK game in either line.
