Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-03-05  cade: Not a good idea to castle straight into a full on white attack. Well, unless you are Kasparov. 12...0-0-0 is a pretty bad move.
Apr-07-05  EmperorAtahualpa: 8...Nh5 is already a bad move. Black's knight is completely useless there, as you will see it serves no purposes whatsoever throughout the rest of the game. So, effectively, Black is already a piece down ever since the 8th move. Hence there is no trouble sacrificing White's knight on the 20th move.

Black did not want to castle the other way because of White's strong b1-h7 diagonal. Perhaps putting the knight back on f6 would have helped but it loses tempo and cramps up Black's play.

Apr-11-05  patzer2: If 19...fxe5, then White wins the exchange with the trapped piece combination 20. Qxa7+ Kc8 21. Qa8+ Kc7 22. dxe5 .
Apr-11-05  patzer2: With no defense for Black, 20. Bxa6!! constitutes a winning attack on the weakened castled position.
Apr-11-05  patzer2: In the final position, play might continue 27...Qd7 28. Bb5+ Rc6 29. Bxc6+ bxc6 30. Qxc6+ Kd8 31. Qa8+ Kd7 32. Qc8#
Apr-11-05  patzer2: If 20...bxa6, White wins after 21. Qxa6 :

20... bxa6 21. Qxa6 Ra7 (21... Rb7 22. Nxc6+ Rxc6 23. Rxc6 Ra7 24. Rb3+ Ka8 25. Rc8+ Bxc8 26. Qxc8#) 22. Nxc6+ Rxc6 23. Rb3+ Rb7 24. Rxc6 Rxb3 (24... Bf5+ 25. Kc1 ) 25. axb3 Bf5+ 26. Kc1 Qb7 (26... Bc8 27. Rxc8#) (26... Qa7 27. Qb5+ Qb7 28. Rb6) 27. Rb6
