Feb-10-05  nikolaas: A classic but nice king-side attack. Black payed not enough attention to the white action and got smashed. It's difficult to say where exactly black went wrong, but I personally don't like 17....h6. Perhaps Nxd3 is better?
Feb-10-05  jperr75108: it seems to me that not much is better than h6....
1... Nxd3 2. cxd3 Be7 3. Ne4 Bxe4 4. Qxe4 Nd7 5. Rac1 and it seems to me that white is a tiny bit better
Feb-15-05  Backward Development: <24...Bxg2+! Bringing the white king to g2 gives good drawing chances. 25.Kxg2 Rxf7 26.Rxf7 Nxd3! <26...Qc6+ 27.Kh3 Nxd3 28.Qg6 <28.Rxf8+ Rxf8 29.Qxh6 > 28...Nf4+ 29.Rxf4 Bg7 30.Rf7 Rg8> 27.cxd3 <27.Rxc7?? Nf4+ 28.Kf3 Nxh5> 27...Qc6+ 28.Kh3 Bg7> -Analysis by London Chess Center.
Mar-02-06  patzer2: White plays an interesting demolition of pawn structure combination with 20. Bxh6!? Black can probably force a draw with best play in the 24...Bxg2+ line mentioned above.

Still it's not a bad way to proceed with the attack -- good winning chances with a draw in hand!
