Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-16-05  Pawsome: 20. Nf6!!? is nice shot, Stellwagen vs Mamedyrov later in this tournament promises to be a real sharp game.
Jan-16-05  quXa: Nice game, but Stellwagen missed a much quicker win. 24. Bg7+! would have ended Ernst's play immediatly.

24... Ke7??
25. Qxd5 and lost his queen.

24... Kxg7
25. Rg3+ Kf6
26. Rg6+ Kf7
27. Rg5+ Kf6
28. Qg6+ Ke7
29. Rxd5

And he can't recapture, Rae8 for counterplay. But blacks position is devestated. Somehow black can still restrain some of the damage by Re5.

24... Qd6
25. Bg5+ Kxe5
26. Bf4+ Kf6
(Grabbing it would be mate, 26... Kxf4 27. g3+ Ke4 28. Re3# ) 28. Bxd6 cxd6

May-05-06  AdrianP: 21. ...Nf5 seems to be a better defence. Does anyone see a clear way through for White after that?
