If 17.d4, then 17...g4 18.f4 g3 19.fxg3 hxg3 20.Qe2 g2 wins.

If 18.Bxc5, then 18...gxf319.Rg1 Ng4

If 20.Qd2, then 20...Nh5, threatening 21...Ng3+.

<Better may be 16.Bxc5 dxc5 17.Nc1>

What about the interpolation of 16. Bxc5 Rh6!, for example 16. Bxc5 Rh6 17. Be3 Rg6+ 18. Ng3 hxg3 19. fxg3 Rxg3+! 20. hxg3 Qxg3+ 21. Kh1 0-0-0, followed by 22...Rh8+ etc.

  Honza Cervenka: 14.Be3 was a mistake. 14.d4 would have been better.
